The University of Arizona Cancer Center Supportive Care Clinic is designed to provide integrated care to cancer survivors. Cancer survivors are people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Some organizations expand that definition to include people who have been affected by the diagnosis, such as family members, friends and caregivers. Our team can address the physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual issues that arise around diagnosis and treatment for patients and their loved ones.  The physicians in the Supportive Care Clinic are trained in primary care as well as integrative medicine.  They use an individualized approach that takes into account the full spectrum of needs and concerns of our patients through all stages of treatment and recovery.

In collaboration with the medical and psychosocial services at The University of Arizona Cancer Center, we will work with patients to:

  • Reduce physical symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment, including management of pain, fatigue, insomnia, nausea and other GI issues, appetite, anxiety, depression and stress management
  • Maintain optimal nutrition and physical activity during and after treatment using specific recommendations and guidance that is designed to meet individual needs
  • Assist with healthy lifestyle choices including smoking cessation, weight management and coping styles
  • Enhance the body's natural defense systems
  • Provide evidence-based counseling regarding botanicals, supplements and complementary therapies 
  • Develop and work towards goals for health, wellness, and what is most meaningful and valuable after diagnosis, as well as during and after treatment
  • Regain a sense of control and well-being despite the diagnosis
