Ways We Can Help
At University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, we know that cancer changes a person’s life, which is why we focus on caring for each patient as a whole person. In order to do our best, we ask patients and their loved ones to partner with us in these ways:
Talk to Us About Concerns or Worries
We encourage patients to tell us about their concerns and worries, ask us questions, let us know if we are not meeting their needs, or if they have new ones. Knowing what problems a patient is having and how he or she is coping helps us to treat them better.
Tell Us About Day-to-Day Issues
Patients may have day-to-day problems that are caused or made worse by their cancer. They might have trouble getting rides to doctor visits, money issues, or problems with children or loved ones. We know this stress can affect a patient’s health and well-being, so patients are encourage to tell us if they have these types of concerns. Our team will work to find ways to help.
