The Unit treats oncology patients as well as patients with complex chronic pain without an oncological diagnosis yet still needing intensive painkilling drugs treatment.
 
The Unit operates on all levels of treatment to provide the patient with the best possible care and support while they cope with the pain:

  • Evaluation of symptoms and developing a palliative treatment program.

  • Consultations with oncologists, family doctors and preparing home support treatment programs.

  • Treatment within a hospitalization framework to stabilize symptoms and obtain a respite from the pain.

  • Close monitoring of the patient and availability for phone support and advice.
