Palliative Medicine Clinic at Stanford Cancer Center
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 assist with documentation of an advanced directive and goals of care. Treatments offered integrate medical, psychological, social work, and spiritual approaches. Care is coordinated with cancer treatments.
It wouldn't be the best care possible if we didn't provide it in an atmosphere that soothes your soul and makes navigating treatment simple and convenient. The Stanford Cancer Center stands as a physical symbol of our concern for your health and well-being, with nourishing details like:
Live piano music in the entry
Natural light throughout the building
Room for your family to remain with you while you are receiving treatment
In addition, a variety of services and support staff are available to help with emotional, physical or social challenges that you might encounter while receiving cancer care. Visit the Stanford Cancer Center to learn more about the variety of programs and services we offer.
Support groups and classes
It's well established that support groups and their impact on cancer patient outcomes is very important. Much of this exceptional work has come from support groups at Stanford.
Psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers are involved in cancer support groups within the program. Visit the Cancer Supportive Care Program to learn about the free classes, groups and events we offer at the Stanford Cancer Center.
