Before, During and After Hair Loss: Tips for the Mastectomy Fitter

Sherry Brooks, Image Recovery Specialist, Image Boutique at Georgia Cancer Center

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the stages of hair loss and resources available
  • Discover basic steps of care for hair loss patients
  • Discuss ways to make patients feel comfortable and confident throughout this process
  • List things to look for when referring a patient to a reputable organization

Session Description:

Often times, in our industry we are sought after as a resource for cancer patients and we may not always have the right answers or the place to refer our patient in need. During this session, attendees can expect to learn about the total patient experience when working with patients experiencing hair loss from beginning to end. Sherry will teach attendees the basics for each patient and describe the way you want the patient to feel when they leave. Attendees who are not interested in offering hair loss services will also learn what to look for when referring a patient for hair loss services.
