Supportive Care Clinic at BC Cancer - VancouverAlmost half of cancer patients experience significant emotional distress, and 20% meet criteria for PTSD. To create a safe, neutral space, and more room for services such as psychiatry and counselling, BC Cancer Vancouver has opened a new Supportive Care clinic, separate from the cancer centre.
