City of Hope employs a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, enlisting the expertise of various specialists to address the individual needs of each patient.
Here, treatment teams are composed of caregivers who work in concert to address all aspects of patient care, from oncologists, surgeons and nurses to social workers, psychiatrists, nutritionists and spiritual care providers. Clinicians and scientists also join forces to rapidly and efficiently transform laboratory discoveries into novel, targeted therapies.
Our collaborative pursuits extend beyond City of Hope as well. We frequently conduct clinical trials in partnership with government agencies and other academic centers, ensuring that patients here and elsewhere receive the potential benefit of promising investigative therapies as quickly as possible.
