Please be assured that you are in good hands; our team of professionals is here to care for and support you through your treatment plan. Our patient –centred approach will guide you through your initial assessment, testing and treatments, education and ongoing follow-up care.
Throughout this plan you will work hand-in-hand with our interprofessional team of medical oncologists (doctors specializing in cancer care), specialized oncology nurses and radiation oncologists.
These health-care professionals will also work together with our supportive care team that includes social workers, spiritual and religious care consultants, dietitians, pharmacists, and others to support you through the delivery of your personalized treatment program
The Oncology Department provides care at three NHS sites, with the hub of care being provided at the St. Catharines Site. There are satellite clinics at the Greater Niagara General and Welland Hospital Sites where consultation, follow-up and supportive care is provided to outpatients and inpatients, promoting care as close to home as possible.
Complete the self-reporting history before your visit and bring it with you to your first appointment. At that time, you will meet your oncology team.
You and your oncologists will discuss and decide on the best treatment plan for you.
If additional tests are required, these will be identified and ordered by your oncologists at the time of your visit. Please note that chemotherapy treatment is only administered at the Walker Family Cancer Centre or Juravinski Cancer Centre in Hamilton. Your treatment plan will guide where your care and follow-up will be provided.
