Have you ever heard of the term precision cancer care?

Well, to be more precise, it is a novel therapeutic mechanism that aims to map disease mutations with available treatments, so as to provide customized and patient-centered treatments for cancer patients. This simply means that cancer treatment, unlike other treatments, has become more individualized and standardized, given the need for long-term care.

Cancer is a devastating disease, for both patients and their families. Advancements in medical science have contributed to lower mortality rates – thereby resulting in more number of patients undergoing follow-up studies and care – indicating the need for more number of specialty care clinics for cancer.

Cancer care includes diagnosis, treatment (both inpatient and outpatient), care and follow-up studies. These are considered as the functional healthcare requirements in a cancer diagnosis & treatment center. However, state-of-the-art diagnostics, treatment and care have not proven 100% successful in treating cancer to the core. Hence, treatment being a primary need for every disease, interior design of the care clinics has also become an essential aspect of a successful treatment regimen.

Unlike other healthcare facilities, designing cancer care clinics demands for a wider scope of design considerations. In order to successfully create an effective and responsive cancer facility, healthcare interior designers pay closer attention to the needs of patients and hospital staff, as well as the visitors.
