Expert interviewed in this episode:
Dr Toni Lindsay, Clinical Psychologist

Dr Toni Lindsay and Julie McCrossinIn this episode, the thing about advanced cancer is that caring for someone when cancer is advanced can be both rewarding and challenging.

If you are caring for someone with cancer, you might find that you are so focused on supporting them that you forget your own needs or don’t really acknowledge the impact it is having on you.

Julie sits down with clinical psychologist Dr Toni Lindsay to talk about how to care for someone with advanced cancer, and some of the challenges that come with this – such as helping with making treatment decisions, coping with the financial impacts, and dealing with the emotional burden that both the person with cancer and their carers often face.

Over the years, Toni has provided psychological and emotional support to many people with cancer, as well as their carers and families, so she is well placed to talk about these important issues.
