“When going through cancer treatment it is important patients are given everything they need to manage. It is my role to guide and support them to be at their best health, whatever cards they have been dealt. Modern health care should involve the complete treatment of a person including their physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the eradication of disease.” Dr David Joske, Senior Haematologist, Solaris Cancer Care Founder and Medical Director
Solaris Cancer Care is Western Australia’s leader in cancer support and integrative health care. Our vision is to bring humanity to healthcare through care, compassion and the community. We believe that treating the whole person and not just the disease promotes overall well-being and improved quality of life across all stages of cancer.
Solaris Cancer Care centres provide access to safe, evidence based support services to assist with the emotional and physical effects of a cancer diagnosis.
We have five centres operated by one of WA’s largest statewide network of volunteers offering a range of safe complementary integrated therapies such as massage and reflexology, We also offer counselling, quiet reflective drop in areas, support, information resources and referrals, education and exercise programs. Solaris has an active collaborative research team.
By combining the best in modern medicine with evidence-based support, we support best patient outcomes and quality of life.
