Patient-Centered Medical Care
In our hospital, under the policy of “patient-centered medical care,” specialists in various fields, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, registered dieticians, and radiological technologists, cooperate as a team to provide diagnosis and treatment.
For example, in diagnosis, physicians in each department provide cancer diagnosis in cooperation with physicians and technologists specializing in diagnostic imaging.
For cancer treatment, surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy (anticancer drugs) are major treatment modalities, and each department provides the most appropriate treatment for each patient in cooperation with the Department of Surgical Operation Service, Department of Radiation Oncology, Department of Comprehensive Medical Oncology, and so on.
Comprehensive Patient Support
Our hospital provides not only cancer treatment, but also treatment of any other complicating conditions of cancer patients, such as mental and physical pain, infection (oral hygiene), and cardiovascular, respiratory, and renal dysfunction. In addition, nurses, pharmacists, and registered dieticians participate in all stages of treatment and pay attention to patients’ health status from various aspects.
Furthermore, we try to improve the QOL (Quality of Life) of patients and their families, through provision of counseling on various problems and worries of patients and their families by medical social workers (MSW), post-discharge support in cooperation with local medical institutions and visiting nursing stations, and other necessary approaches.
Efforts for Early Detection of Cancer by Cancer Screening
Our hospital provides cancer screening in the Cancer Screening Center annexed to our hospital. If cancer screening detects abnormal findings related to cancer, the hospital will immediately provide a detailed examination followed by necessary treatment.
Creation of Advanced Medical Care in Cooperation with the Cancer Institute
The Cancer Institute Hospital closely cooperate with the Cancer Institute and Cancer Chemotherapy Center. This cooperation leads the development of advanced diagnosis and treatment and provision of advanced medical care.
