Supportive Care

Improving patients’ quality of life, including end of life

Over a three-year period, supportive care interventions at City of Hope left a lasting impact on individuals and families before, during, and after treatment. Reduced days in the ICU prevent patients and their caregivers from experiencing the high distress often experienced during an ICU stay.
