About the Symptom Management Service
The Symptom Management Service (SMS) offers consultations to improve the quality of life and care for patients at UCSF’s Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The SMS provides treatment and counseling for physical and emotional symptoms of cancer, to help people live as well as possible. Assistance includes help with pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, advanced-care planning and spiritual issues. Treatments integrate medical, psychological, social work and spiritual approaches, which are offered along with regular cancer care. Care is coordinated with cancer treatments and with the support of patients’ oncology team.
