Oncology Supportive Care

This is a global and multi-professional approach designed to support patients throughout their cancer treatment.

According to the individual's therapeutic plan, it either focuses on readjustment and reintegration or on palliative comfort care.

The oncology supportive care service is an integral part of the Chirec Cancer Institute and combines different disciplines that offer patients with cancer an approach that complements the cancer treatment:

  • Psycho-oncology
  • Liaison psychiatry
  • Oncology physiotherapy
  • Oncology rehabilitation
  • Nutrition
  • Supportive oncology
  • Social services
  • Pain clinic
  • Continuous and palliative care
  • Smoking cessation
  • Speech therapy

 

Collaboration with treating physicians

Collaboration with your treating physicians is essential in the palliative care sector.

They are regularly informed of the patient's progress and decisions concerning the hospitalised patient through reports or telephone calls and they play a central role in palliative care at home.

The palliative care teams collaborate with second-line home support teams as well as with the palliative care units.
