Aminah Keats: The major factor that attracted me to the CTCA model is the idea of patient empowerment. Where patients are presented with a part of their treatment plan from each department and from that point it’s their decision to determine how they’re going to fight their own cancer. The whole-person approach at CTCA benefits patients because when you’re attacking cancer you just can’t attack it from a physical perspective, you have to attack it from a mind, body, medicine perspective as well and here we have naturopathic clinicians, we have counselors, we have dietitians, we have pastoral care here to help patients get over this hump and fight the cancer.
