Psycho-oncology

In addition to medical treatment aimed at the physical manifestations of cancer, patients at Ludwigshafen Hospital also have access to advice and support from our own team of psychologists. Cancer can have an impact on different areas of a person's life and may have an adverse effect on a patient's quality of life. As a result, all our inpatients are offered counselling to assist them in coming to terms with their illness. If a patient prefers to be accompanied by a member of their family, this can be arranged upon request. We also provide information regarding other help and assistance that is available in the region. Members of our psycho-oncology team may recommend that treatment should continue on an out-patient basis following discharge and, if requested, will be able to make the necessary contacts.

  • Assisting you in finding and developing ways of coping
