Palliative and Supportive Care
When facing advanced disease or severe pain, quality of life becomes precious. Our Symptom Control and Palliative Care department at Teriaq Cancer Center is dedicated to helping patients to have the best quality of life. Our approach strives to find new ways of assessing and managing severe physical and psychosocial symptoms in advanced and terminal cancer patients. We also offer continuing education opportunities for cancer specialists, community health care workers, medical students and residents who want to learn the latest in palliative cancer care, end-of-life care and cancer rehabilitation.
We believe that approaching patient care from different aspects will benefit patient's quality of life greatly, so we work as an interdisciplinary team. This means that the health care team members have different medical areas of expertise. The team also has specific training in palliative care and work together to plan a patient's treatment and care. We strongly encourage patients and their family members to be involved with all levels of patient care. Patients can arrange meetings with the health care team. This helps us to develop personalized and tailored care for our patients.
