Patient Support

UI Health has many resources to help patients undergoing treatment for colorectal cancers. Our clinical social workers provide a variety of support and assistances to cancer patients. Our social workers are available to offer emotional support to patients and families as they adjust to a new diagnosis. Our team works with patients to help reduce anxiety, depression, and stress, and improve patients' ability to cope with their disease. The social workers also can provide information and referrals to supportive programs within the community. Our goal is to develop care plans with patients and families to address psychosocial barriers to care.

Through the American Cancer Society, UI Health has an on-site bilingual patient navigator and offers assistance to help reduce barriers to care, including transportation, lodging, insurance and billing questions, scheduling assistance, and more.Support Group
