Cancer Care Ontario


Psychosocial oncology focuses on a whole-person approach to cancer care, addressing the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual and functional aspects of the patient journey through a multidisciplinary team and service providers from various care settings. The disciplines include: oncology, nursing, social work, nutrition, psychology, palliative care, psychiatry, rehabilitation, volunteer services, and spiritual care. Cancer places a heavy emotional toll on patients and their families; psychosocial oncology aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by cancer.
