Supportive Care

Specialized Support Groups

In order to serve the unique needs of cancer patients, our social workers host regular support groups at multiple Compass Oncology locations. The support they provide takes many forms from the practical to the emotional and the spiritual. Their focus is on the issues that are so important to quality of life during and after treatment. Meet our supportive care providers.
