The team works closely with Cancer Center providers to identify and address challenges with adjusting to the illness; the stresses of medical treatment; emotional needs; relationships and caregiving; coping with pain, insomnia and other symptoms; and much more. Providers use behavioral approaches and medication to help individuals who are facing cancer and treatment, and life beyond. The clinical service is open to individuals being treated at UCSF and their family members. We collaborate with other supportive care programs, such as the Cancer Resource Center, social work, Spiritual Care Services and the Symptom Management Service, to provide the best possible care for our patients and their families.
An important mission of Psycho-Oncology at UCSF is to raise the standard of psychosocial care across the Cancer Center through educational activities and research.
A NEW 7-week course taught by Psycho-Oncology psychologists Dianne Shumay, Ph.D. and Jamie Cohen, Psy.D. focused on learning how to use mindfulness and psychological flexibility to make satisfying choices and commit to personal values during a cancer journey.
