WHAT IS CANCER SUPPORTIVE CARE?
Supportive cancer care “is better and earlier access to expertise in managing the “range of” adverse
effects of cancer and cancer treatments.” (Berman, et al., 2017)
Overwhelming evidence demonstrates that cancer supportive care services improve outcomes for the
nearly one in two Canadians who will develop cancer in their lifetime. 70% of cancer patients suffer from
physical and psychosocial distress, financial and workplace challenges and other lasting side effects that
require ongoing comprehensive supportive care. If this is you, get help today.
