Medical Teams by Cancer Type

 

Disease site groups (DSGs) bring together dedicated nurses, physicians, therapists, scientists, technologists, pharmacists, counsellors, support staff, volunteers and others in a multidisciplinary approach to dealing with the many impacts of cancer.

If you, or someone you love, is living with a cancer, our "DSGs" are working as a team to help our patients to live successfully, comfortably - and in some cases even joyfully - despite a cancer diagnosis.
