Palliative & Supportive Oncology

Patients with a complex, life-threatening illness often have unrelieved cancer symptoms and significant physical difficulties during their illness. Specially trained staff in the Harry R. Horvitz Center for Palliative Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center coordinate the complex medical care for patients as they face the physical and psychological challenges associated with their illness and the pain related to cancer symptoms.
