Improving Supportive Oncology Care

The Coleman Foundation convened the Supportive Oncology Collaborative to explore supportive oncology, an aspect of care which has been overlooked by conventional cancer treatment. Supportive Oncology care aims to help cancer patients:

  • Clarify diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plans
  • Address concerns that affect day-to-day life
  • Complete treatment while managing side-effects
  • Explore and document medical and care wishes

National organizations, such as the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and Commission on Cancer (CoC), recommend systematic delivery of supportive oncology and survivorship care to all cancer patients throughout the continuum of care.
