Beyond the Classroom: Students Improve Access to Supportive Care Services
Virtua Cancer Program expanded their oncology services at no cost by partnering with Masters in Social Work students in their community. The student volunteers provide meditation to the infusion patients and have increased supportive care patient encounters by 133% overall. The students have also been instrumental in supporting and growing a program for patients with advanced cancer that offers emotional support around advanced directives and end-of-life discussions.
