Palliative Care for Cancer
The Stanford Palliative Medicine Clinic at the Cancer Center
provides treatment and counseling for physical and emotional needs
during cancer treatment. Examples include pain, fatigue, nausea,
depression, anxiety, and spiritual issues. Additionally, the team can

Treatments offered integrate medical, psychological, social work, and
spiritual approaches. Care is coordinated with cancer treatments.
