Clinical Supportive Medicine

Clinical supportive medicine is a special team of doctors and nurses who work with patients, families and the main health-care team to help improve your quality of life. They are experts in keeping patients comfortable at any point during their treatment.
 
We provide the following services and support:
 
  • Address early symptoms of a patient’s disease and side effects of treatment.
  • Control pain and manage uncontrolled or a complex range of symptoms.
  • Help clarify hard choices and make value-based medical decisions.
  • Understand what you value and use it to guide decisions.
