Our integrated model of care means that patients can access evidence-based complementary therapies and allied health services alongside specialist cancer care, all in one place. A team of supportive care professionals work together across multiple disciplines to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
Integrative Oncology & Complementary Therapies
The Lifehouse LivingRoom, located on the ground floor, offers a range of evidence-based complementary therapies to help you live well with cancer. All our practitioners have specialised in oncology care.
Our allied health practitioners are skilled medical professionals who work with doctors and nurses to support you through your cancer treatment, with focus on protecting and restoring optimal physical, psychological, cognitive, and social functions.
The LivingRoom is the home of Supportive Cancer Care and Integrative Medicine at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse. Located on the ground floor, The LivingRoom offers evidence-based complementary therapies as part of the overall package of cancer care.
Most supportive care services can be accessed from the comfort of your room. Ask one of our friendly staff for help.
