How to Cope with Pain

City of Hope's Department of Supportive Care Medicine provides specialized care for people with serious illnesses, focusing on relieving symptoms such as pain and nausea.

By taking an interdisciplinary team approach to providing comprehensive, holistic care to address symptoms like these associated with cancer and cancer treatment, we’re able to help alleviate patient discomfort, not just treat their illness. Our staff is trained in advanced communication skills, making them able to help patients document their values and goals, and assist with advance care planning.
 
If you or a loved one is experiencing pain symptoms, please talk to your physician or care provider.
 
Use these useful guides and booklets to help you manage the effects of pain.
 
Many are also available in print at the Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center on our main campus in Duarte.
