Cancer Support Services
Markey is known for providing state-of-the-art care, but patients have needs that even these treatments cannot reach. Patients may have pain from their disease, or experience anxiety or depression. Some are overwhelmed by decisions related to their care, and many worry about the family members who rely upon them. Palliative care is a special branch of medicine dedicated to meeting these patient needs.
Palliative care and integrative medicine at Markey Cancer Center currently includes:
- Integrative Medicine
- Jin Shin Jyutsu
- Nutrition information and planning
- Oncology social work
- Palliative care resources at UK HealthCare
- A variety of support groups and local resources
