Each person who comes to Memorial Sloan Kettering for leukemia treatment benefits from our team approach to care. Members of the leukemia team meet weekly to review and discuss your treatment plan. Other specialists, including those who provide psychosocial support, help the team meet your and your caregivers’ nonmedical needs. These healthcare professionals work together to provide a full spectrum of supportive care.
A collaborative approach is very important when caring for people with leukemia because many patients require more than one form of treatment. Having a team of specialists working together from the very beginning optimizes your care.
