Understanding your treatment can help lessen your anxiety and help to resolve concerns. No two people experience cancer and chemotherapy in the same way. It is normal to feel angry, afraid, or depressed. At other times you may feel hopeful, peaceful, or confident. Whatever you feel now, or later is okay. Questions, concerns, and mixed feelings about receiving chemotherapy is common, and we are here to help with those.
At the Charles W. Christie Cancer Center, we are dedicated to supporting our patients through their cancer journey. We practice the “team approach” to cancer care. This means that our patients’ cancer treatment plans are formed by our team of medical professionals including oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, and chemotherapy certified medical staff. These plans are individualized to each patient’s specific tumor types, with attention to the molecular and genetic nature of the disease. The multidisciplinary team approach to patient treatment provides a higher quality of care for both the patient and their families.
The Department of Hematology/Oncology has been recognized by the QOPI Certification Program (QCP), an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). QOPI Certification evaluates an individual practices performance in areas that effect patient care and safety. To achieve QOPI Certification, a practice must have met or exceeded a benchmark score on comprehensive, safety, and patient care measures that compare the quality of its care against national standards. Certification is awarded when a practice meets QCP’s Standards.
