At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, we surround you with experts who focus completely on cancer. A handful of people make up the core of your care team. You will have an oncologist and a registered nurse who are experienced in caring for people with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). At some visits, you might see an advanced practice provider. A patient care coordinator will schedule your visits.
Others join your team based on your personal needs. If you need a blood or marrow transplant, we have experts in this treatment. If you get a new health issue that might affect your cancer treatment, we call in the right experts. For example, if medicine side effects may be affecting your heart health, we will work closely with UW Medicine cardio-oncologists. These specialists know how to address the issues that matter for people with cancer.
Supportive care providers are also here to help. You may see Fred Hutch registered dietitians, physical therapists, psychologists, social workers and others. All of us specialize in caring for people during and after cancer.
