A care team holistically focused on quality of life.
Parkview Packnett Family Cancer Institute realizes that comfort care plays a large role in cancer care due to both the physical and emotional effects of cancer. That’s why we have the only palliative oncologists in the region. These important and unique experts work together with the rest of your care team to ensure a comprehensive approach to your treatment plan – one that prevents or addresses possible symptoms and side effects from cancer and its treatment.
Studies have shown numerous positive effects on patients receiving comfort care during their cancer journey, including:
- Better symptom control.
- Improved physical and mental health.
- Empowerment over cancer care decisions.
