Patient-Centered Services

Goal: Improve the Lives for Persons Diagnosed with Cancer and those of their Support Systems

The presence of family is the biggest support

What Are Patient-Centered Services?

Patient-centered services are defined as: specialized care for people with a cancer diagnosis that focuses on improving quality of life for those persons and their support system; services that are provided by a multidisciplinary healthcare team who work together with a patient’s oncologist to provide comprehensive support and care.

Patients are provided individualized care in conjunction with curative treatment. These services focus on four main developmental objectives: survivorship, palliative care, end of life care, and clinical trials/research.

Priority Objective: Survivorship

SURVIVORSHIP is the 2017 priority objective under the Patient-Centered Services component of the Cancer Plan.
