At the Duke Cancer Institute we focus on treating the whole person, not just the disease. We combine excellent support services with advanced medical care to help ease the experience of having cancer and receiving treatment.
The multidisciplinary care team includes social workers, physical therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists, and financial advisors who are dedicated to helping meet the emotional and logistical needs of our patients.
The Hematologic Malignancy Program offers assistance with lodging, food services, in-home care, financial counseling, and other concerns that may arise during cancer treatment.
Trained specialists and compassionate volunteers offer educational and psychological support to patients and their families through the Duke Center for Cancer Survivorship and its patient care programs:
A wide variety of events take place throughout the year to provide patient education and provide patients with the tools and resources they need to maintain a high quality of life throughout treatment.
The Leukemia, Lymphoma, Multiple Myeloma Support Group is open to patients with head and neck cancer and their families or caregivers.
