Your personalized treatment plan will depend on factors that are unique to you, from your specific diagnosis to your personal health and preferences. But one thing that most patients can count on is that it will take a team. And that’s where Providence shines.
Your team may include multiple experts who specialize in very specific aspects of treatment, as well as nurses, dietitians, counselors and others, all collaborating on your care. Collaboration is key, and we do it well. One way is through regular tumor boards, where members of your team, as well as Providence specialists from outside your team, gather to review patient cases and to share clinical opinions, recommend treatments or symptom-management strategies, suggest opportunities for clinical trials and optimize care coordination.
If this starts to feel overwhelming, rest assured — we’ve got you. To help guide you through the whole process, we will also team you up with a cancer navigator. Your cancer navigator helps you with care coordination, answers your questions, refers you to helpful support services, and provides emotional support and more to help ease the stress of cancer treatment.
Treatment options and services may differ based on location including Providence Little Company of Mary and Providence Holy Cross where City of Hope partnerships have been established for cancer care.
