Course: Conscious Embodiment: 3 Integrative Steps For Skin Cancer Management
Conscious Embodiment: 3 Integrative Steps for Skin Cancer Management
Keira Barr, MD

This masterclass provides an evidence-based approach for how mind-body strategies might be used to help reduce stress contributing to cancer progression, disease-associated anxiety, and adverse effects of treatment. Stress has multiple and wide-ranging physiologic and clinical impacts on skin cancer through the effect of locally secreted hormones and mediators that affect skin integrity, inflammation, and healing potential. Studies have shown that introducing mind-body practices can have positive effects on skin cancer influenced by psychological stress exposure. The discussion will center around augmenting current treatment strategies as well as exploring the role of technology and group programs to expand current treatment protocols.
