For Physicians

For Physicians & Health Experts

Kuwait Cancer Control Center (KCCC) objects to bring trusted medical expertise from specialized healthcare providers, with extensive knowledge to enhance cancer care in Kuwait. We encourage our healthcare professionals to be updated with the most recent approachs to cancer carer. The most paramount potential benefit of the implementation and use of clinical practice guidelines is the improvement of health outcomes. Using a standard format and pre-printed forms for different anti-cancer treatment protocol proven clinical benefit and discourage ineffective ones have the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality while improving the quality of life.

For Patients

For Patients & Their Families

Although many medical advances have been made in the treatment of cancer, the emotional effects of cancer diagnosis on patients and their families remain great. Taking a look at cancer patient lifestyle can help him/her to decide which treatment is the best. Attention to patient needs and circumstances when planning care is associated with improved health care outcomes. We offer support and information for people with cancer and their family, friends and caregivers. Knowledge and support are power to face fear, anxiety, helplessness, anger, and other unpleasant feelings. Opportunity to speak one-on-one with a trained volunteer who has had a similar cancer experience will make less anxious, more hopeful and better able to cope.
The best things you can do to improve your health, keep a healthy body weight, and reduce your risk of cancer are to eat well and healthy, regular physical activity, and quit unhealthy habits like smoking and alcohol.
The benefits, challenges, and characteristics of patient-centered communication and shared decision making is important to advance care planning, the provision of palliative care and psychosocial support across the cancer continuum, and timely referral to hospice when needed.
