If you or a loved one is living with a serious illness and struggling with pain, stress or other symptoms, a referral to a palliative care team can help provide relief and improve your quality of life.
The Palliative and Supportive Care Clinic at Walker Family Cancer Centre offers a holistic approach for all symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment. Our palliative care team supports the patient and family needs during the journey of an advanced cancer disease.
When palliative and supportive care is involved earlier in the treatment plan of patients with advanced cancer, it can lead to improved quality of life and emotional wellbeing for patients and their families. With this patient-centred approach, patients and families are empowered to manage and navigate their care more actively.
