Support for Patients with Colorectal Cancer
"Supportive oncology care" is cancer care that focuses on all facets of cancer and its impact on the patient, rather than just focusing on the disease itself.
As a result, it encompasses symptom management, psychosocial support and interventions designed to lessen suffering associated with both the cancer itself and the treatment’s side effects as well as nurture the individual’s quality of life.
