This month's LAVA Healthcare features Kristin MacDermott, founder and president of reImagine.mehas developed an entirely new way to help people with the psychological and emotional effects of cancer, something largely unaddressed by the present healthcare system.

 

A decade of research with investigators at Duke Cancer Institute validates that people who participate in her online resiliency skills training program experience clinically significant improvement in every major psychosocial benchmark, including depression, anxiety, distress, PTSD, self-efficacy and even fatigue.

 

The fact that the entire program takes place online allows patients and their loved ones to participate from the comfort of their own homes - without even getting out of their pajamas, if they choose.

 

Kristin believes every cancer patient in America should have access to effective, evidence-based psychosocial care; and is fighting to change the healthcare system to allow reimbursement of this missing aspect of care.
