Oncology care


Oncology care is tailored specifically to the needs of people with cancer and their relatives. It often also includes advice and support. It often overlaps with psychiatric care and palliative care. Typical services include coordinating with other service providers, administration of infusions (chemotherapy, nutrient solutions) and blood transfusions, advice and support on managing physical symptoms (pain, nausea, shortness of breath) and psychological symptoms (anxiety, crisis situations) and on advance healthcare directives and funeral and burial/cremation instructions.
