By utilizing Patient Empowerment MedicineSM, patients and caregivers are positioned at the center of their care and are encouraged to voice opinions and participate in their own treatment decisions.
Patient Empowered Care® Teams work together to develop individualized, integrative treatment plans to care for the whole person, not just the cancer. Every patient is assigned a designated team to include their oncologist, naturopathic physician, nutritionist, care manager, and mind-body therapist who will guide them through their journey.
CTCA was built on The Mother Standard® of care. By following the Mother Standard, every employee is empowered to lovingly care for patients and their caregivers the same way they would want their own loved ones to be treated. More than the gold standard, the Mother Standard has transformed the face of oncology care.
