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 healthcare 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 Niagara Health sites, promoting care close to home.
Please review the New Patient Orientation before your first appointment at WFCC. This will help prepare you for your first visit.
At your first appointment you will be given a Patient Education Binder. It has important information about WFCC and available resources. This can be viewed or downloaded here.
Your first appointment at the Walker Family Cancer Centre will include a meeting with your oncologist. You and your oncologist will discuss a treatment plan that is best for you. If additional tests are needed, these will be ordered at the time of your visit. Please complete a Self-Reporting History and bring it with you to your first appointment.
