Applying Evidence-based Supportive Care Skills in Real-world Practice
Manage Symptoms. Communicate Clearly. Lead Change.
Supportive care interventions have been shown to improve quality of life for patients and families, decrease unnecessary and costly interventions for patients near the end of life, and even extend life in certain patients.
City of Hope is one of only a handful of organizations nationwide that is changing the health care landscape around supportive care.
This skills-based training program offers the knowledge and tools needed to provide a gold standard of care in supportive medicine. Creating a broader network of providers trained to offer supportive care will meaningfully transform the quality of life for patients and families.
