Palliative consultation hour

We, as the University Cancer Center Hamburg, like to offer you a multidisciplinary consultation and support to participate in life - until the last day.

An incurable illness often creates psychological and social problems including difficult controllable fears for patients, their relatives and friends. From all disease-based symptoms, permanent and frequently recurring pain is the most challenging to treat.

For affected patients this not only means physical pain but also a psychological burden. Due to our close cooperation of our palliative consultation hour and our pain team at the UKE it is possible for us to offer a therapy for very complex pain conditions, e.g. a combination of drug treatment and interventional methods, which will be individually designed for your situation, needs and illness.

The palliative consultation hour is part of the living with tumor consultation hour service.
