Die Psychoonkologie beschäftigt sich mit den Zusammenhängen von Psyche und Krebs.
Hier habe ich an einer intensiven Ausbildung über mehrere Jahre teilgenommen und habe die Zusatzbezeichnung Psychoonkologie ( WPO) erhalten.

Ein Zitat welches mich berührt :
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. - Elisabeth Kübler Ros"

I realized that we needed not to only better pain control but better overall care. People needed the space to be themselves. I coined the term "total pain", from my understanding that dying people have physical, spiritual, psychological, and social pain that must be treated. I have been working on that ever since. ~ Dame Cicely Saunders
