WHOLE-PERSON-CARE, ADAPTED TO SPECIFIC PATIENT POPULATIONS

A new space and a new approach to revolutionize the experience of cancer care ($15M)

Cancer care historically responds reactively to the supportive and palliative care needs of people affected by cancer, intervening later than is optimal for providing the most effective assistance. Building on the legacy of Whole Person Care at McGill, we are re-engineering the system to proactively meet the needs of people affected by cancer and ensure they have access to best-in-class services that improve both their quality of life and their chances of benefiting from cancer therapies.

“We now have a unique opportunity to bring these services together in one, easily-accesible location, to offer seamless care and improve quality of life and patient outcomes.”
