Integrated Cancer Pain Clinic Helps Patient Get Back to her Passions
“Cancer treatment is not just about cure — it's about quality of life. That's something Courtney Speers learned first-hand when she received help from the Integrated Cancer Pain Clinic at Wilmot Cancer Institute. ”
Our goal is to improve cancer patient’s overall quality of life and return to an optimal functional state with the help of multimodal pain treatment strategies that help reduce pain related to cancer or its treatment. We optimize care for in-patients with chronic pain or cancer related pain. We aim to target patients with high-impact chronic or cancer pain using opioid sparing techniques with a range of modalities. We use safe and structured opioid management leading to overall decrease in opioid usage. We facilitate earlier patient discharge from the hospital.
