Community-Embedded Care Management and Psychosocial Support
Descriptive studies and our years of experience have shown that social and emotional support is the most desired need by oncology patients. Other empirical studies indicate that emotional support is associated withbetter adjustment during disease treatment. If a patient’s family maintains a hands-off approach or seem disengaged and distant, social and emotional support can usually be found for patients within their own communities.
We refer to this as community-embedded care.
