LIVESTRONG FOUNDATION

Training for Cancer Counselors

LIVESTRONG Fertility Toolkit helps cancer patients preserve their fertility before treatment begins.

A diagnosis of cancer is frightening no matter what ones’ age. For sufferers in their child-bearing years the news can be doubly devastating, as cancer treatment can disrupt reproductive potential of both men and women.

Challenge
LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigator counselors are accustomed to working with frightened and overwhelmed clients. Understandably, treatment of the cancer itself is often uppermost not only in the client’s mind, but also their oncologist’s and support network’s. LIVESTRONG wished to provide information on fertility preservation options before cancer treatment begins. Having these discussions early empowers clients to make the most informed, empowered decisions possible.

Approach
Enspire worked closely with LIVESTRONG subject matter experts to create LIVESTRONG Fertility Toolkit, a media-rich course for certified Cancer Navigators, counselors, and third party professionals. Fertility Toolkit interweaves the latest information on fertility preservation options with real-life cancer survivor case studies, original video and motion graphics. It presents training, assesses learners’ knowledge, and refers them on a customized path to additional LIVESTRONG and external resources. Developed in tablet-ready HTML5, the course adhered to LIVESTRONG’s exacting brand standards and in January 2015 was launched on the LIVESTRONG Fertility website.
