CancerAid Coaching Program for Veterans

CancerAid offers a 6-week support and education program for people with a cancer diagnosis. The program is designed by oncologists and delivered by trained health coaches, and helps people take back control over their diagnosis. It is delivered through a smartphone application, or via email, and results so far include: a 7X increase in patients accessing rehabilitation services, a 4.5X increase in patient engagement, a Customer Satisfaction Score of 96, and a Net Promoter Score of +81. The Coach Program is very well suited for veterans, as it tackles the problem of social isolation, mental health, and veteran self-care. CancerAid wishes to offer the Program to all Australian veterans, funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are looking for participants to go through our program, free-of-charge, so we can show its value to the DVA. Ideally, participants would be on treatment or within 6 months of diagnosis.
