Meeting the needs of patients with cancer requires high-quality medical treatment and supportive care. As patients and families make their way along the cancer journey, they need support for many challenges they may encounter. From the early symptoms of the disease through to survival or end-of-life care, patients’ non-medical needs may include support for psychological, emotional, spiritual, social or other concerns.
This section provides a variety of diagnosis, treatment and supportive care resources for health care professionals and patients. Resources for patients include a video series showcasing Canadians telling their personal stories about cancer, and information about cancer support networks. For health care professionals, resources range from evidence-based cancer guidelines to information about tumour classification.
