Supportive Care

Today, there is more focus on the significance of addressing patients’ emotional, physical, and psychosocial well-being.

Supportive cancer care has emerged as a vital component of comprehensive treatment.

Here are a few examples of the incredible progress being made in cancer care:

  • Palliative Care to alleviate pain and enhance comfort while managing cancer-related symptoms and improve the overall well-being of patients.
  • Integrative Therapies such as acupuncture, massage, meditation, and yoga have shown promising results in alleviating treatment-related symptoms like pain, fatigue, and anxiety, empowering patients to actively participate in their healing process.
  • Psychosocial Support to address the emotional and psychological challenges patients face by providing a safe space to express feelings, fears, and concerns.
  • Survivorship Programs are designed to support patients as they transition from active treatment to life after cancer. These programs provide personalized care plans, survivorship education, and ongoing monitoring to address the long-term physical and emotional effects of cancer treatment.
  • Digital Health, such as Telemedicine, Mobile apps, and online platforms, has revolutionized supportive cancer care and provides valuable resources, educational materials, and support networks, empowering patients to actively engage in their care and connect with others facing similar challenges.

These advancements empower cancer patients to navigate their cancer journey with resilience and hope and bring us closer to a future where every person affected by cancer receives comprehensive support and experiences and an improved quality of life.
