TLC: Treatment Learning Course
Our web-based educational material offers an overview of what you can expect as a patient.
Palliative medicine focuses on improving your quality of life from the time of diagnosis, throughout your treatment, and afterward. This is achieved by preventing and treating the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its therapy.
Our registered dietitian works in partnership with your care team to assess your diet, determine your needs, and set goals to follow a healthy diet.
Support groups and other services are available to help you address practical matters in your care and provide psychosocial support to you and your family before, during, and after your treatment.
After going through cancer treatment, cancer survivors have unique medical and psychosocial needs. We develop cancer survivorship care plans to help you and your care team address these issues.
