Supportive Oncology & Survivorship Programs
In 2009, the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center (UNC-LCCC) and North Carolina Cancer Hospital created the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program (CCSP) to provide a wide range of services to ease the burden of cancer and its treatment.
The Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Support Program provides clinical services and conducts research to help patients, caregivers, and families cope with cancer, recovery, and survivorship. CCSP professionals offer cancer-specific psychiatric assessment; counseling; education and survivorship programs; nutritional assessments; integrative medicine; physical symptom management; financial assistance; and a wide range of programs through the Mary Anne Long Patient and Family Resource Center. The CCSP also partners with community and rural cancer practices throughout North Carolina to improve cancer care.
The CCSP operates at the NC Cancer Hospital (inpatient units; radiation oncology; multidisciplinary clinic; and outpatient infusion).
