Professional Supports

The Psychosocial Oncology team are professionals with different specialties and may include psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers or spiritual care providers. They offer different supports and services to patients and family members to help reduce emotional distress and explore how to cope. They can help with things such as communication, stress, coping with treatment side effects, mood changes, quality of life, body image, loneliness, financial concerns or practical support. They also make referrals to other community resources as needed.
