Psycho-social care

Serious illnesses fundamentally change life. Affected families have to deal with new challenges, changes in everyday life and work. Furthermore, they are confronted with medical language and feelings of fear and threat.

The role of the psycho-social team is to support and accompany patients and their families during therapy and aftercare. In doing so, we address their questions, needs and concerns, and we also consider their strengths and abilities.
Our team is made up of employees from different professions, who not only have specialist expertise but also many years of experience in pediatric oncology. An overview of the contact persons can be found below.
