Mac Voice, the magazine for Macmillan professionals: Summer 2016
People affected by cancer and health professionals have helped us revise this popular resource.
The new Macmillan Organiser is more compact than the last version – but it also has more space for people to store other information, forms or booklets in one place.
People can use it to:
• keep the contact details of their health professionals together
• record what they discuss at appointments
• record their medication, when it should be taken and any side effects
• note down how they’re feeling.
People can also use the organiser to keep notes about their diet, physical activity, and their plans for sorting out practical issues such as getting help around the home.
The format of the new organiser is different, with a central pouch containing three different booklets that people can write in: ‘personal’, ‘looking after yourself’ and ‘medical’.
Each booklet also includes relevant information content taken from our booklet The Cancer Guide, which we have also just updated. The Cancer Guide is an ideal resource for people who have recently been diagnosed, or family members and friends who want to know more about what to expect after a cancer diagnosis.
Visit be.Macmillan to order the Macmillan Organiser or The Cancer Guide, and please do let us know what you think.
