Supportive care policy
While clinical care, such as surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, are the most critical to saving or extending life, it is nonetheless important that people with cancer have access to a range of additional services to support their overall health and wellbeing.
A key to improved patient outcomes is ensuring that wide-ranging essential care services are coordinated, with the patient at the centre of the care plan and actively involved in its development. This is referred to as multidisciplinary care.
