Registered Nurses specialized in oncology care and cancer survivorship meet with THFHT patients to provide support, post-treatment symptom management and navigation of follow-up appointments and repeat screening tests.
People who have experienced cancer sometimes feel isolated or nervous after they have finished treatments and seeing their oncologist and cancer centre. The Cancer Survivorship program focuses on support and system navigation to you if you have recently been diagnosed with cancer and after you have finished having regular oncology treatments and appointments.
You can connect with the program RN as often or as little as you would like, but will always have a number you can call if you need something. Our expert nurses can help you with resources, referrals, and support. Therapeutic conversations and counselling are offered as needed to patients and families experiencing cancer.
