Palliative and Supportive Care Team

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.

The team works in partnership with the patient, caregiver, family, family physician, community partner and oncologist.

Team members include:

  • Palliative Care Physician
  • Pain and Symptom Management Nurse
  • Social Worker
  • Spiritual Care
  • Support Staff
