Why supportive care and treatment?
Cancer can have an enormous impact on your life. The illness and its treatment can cause physical problems as well as mental or social issues. Finding the right care at the right time can make a tremendous difference The Netherlands Cancer Institute views supportive care as an important part of oncological care during and after treatment. Supportive care is all treatment that is not aimed to treat your cancer but instead aims to relieve symptoms and problems and to improve the quality of life of patients and their loved ones.
