At the Norris Cotton Cancer Center we understand that the experience of cancer is not just medical—it’s also personal. We recognize that when a patient receives a cancer diagnosis, loved ones are also affected by the illness.
We strive to enhance the comfort and quality of life of people living with cancer and those who love them.
Patient- and family-centered care encompasses a broad range of programs, support services, and survivor and palliative care.
Our programs and services pay close attention to:
- physical and emotional comfort
- coordination and continuity of care
- shared decision making and care planning
- transitions of care
A range of patient- and family-centered services are available to all patients and their families from the moment of diagnosis throughout treatment and beyond.
