Our Programs

Cancer Patient Support Program


Recognizing the unique need for a patient and family support program, the Comprehensive Cancer Center provides different programs to enhance the quality of life for patients and family members while they navigate the complexities of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

Five staff members and more than 30 volunteers provide comfort, support and hope to cancer patients and family members. In fact, the National Cancer Policy Board cites these programs as a best practices model for Comprehensive Cancer Centers.

Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP)

This program is staffed by our team members and volunteers.  We help patients navigate the Cancer Center, provide counseling in the hospital and in the outpatient clinic, and manage educational programs and support meetings.  A Resource Center is also available for patients and family members, and volunteers offer appearance consultations and help with hospitality rooms. Learn more about the Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP).

Psychosocial Oncology Program (POP) 

This program provides counseling for patients and family members.  A trained psychologist usually conducts therapy sessions, where patients discuss the anxiety around cancer treatment. Learn more about the psychosocial oncology program.

Cancer Survivorship 

This program is invaluable for patients who are undergoing the transition from cancer treatment to cancer survivorship. Learn more about the cancer survivorship program at Wake Forest.

Pastoral Care 

Chaplains at the Medical Center serve as members of the health care team, providing support to patients, families and staff. This ministry of compassion has been a part of Wake Forest for 50 years, and has grown along with the medical center. Learn more about pastoral care at Wake Forest.
