Multidisciplinary Benefits:

Nutrition Counseling - Good nutrition is an important part of cancer treatment, recovery, risk reduction, and prevention. Carle Cancer Institute Normal has an oncology certified registered dietitian who works with the healthcare team to provide nutrition assessment, education, and counseling for patients and caregivers whether going through chemotherapy, radiation therapy or survivorship.

Genetic Testing - Genetic testing is a test that looks for inherited changes or mutations in a person’s genes. It is done by gathering a blood or saliva sample from a patient that is sent to a specialty lab that performs this type of testing.  At Carle Cancer Institute Normal, a Registered Nurse will meet with individuals to educate them about the testing process and to discuss the possible benefits and limitations of testing.

Diagnostic PET/CT Services - The PET/CT program at Carle Cancer Institute Normal is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). As an accredited facility, various quality assurance measures must be performed to ensure proper functioning of the PET/CT scanner. Additionally, random scans are also reviewed by an additional radiologist sent for peer review by outside facilities. All of these quality checks must be documented to meet ACR requirements and maintain accreditation.

Spiritual Support - Carle Cancer Institute Normal encourages a holistic approach to the treatment of cancer by caring for body, mind, and spirit. Our chaplain is sensitive to the issues that accompany illness and will respect the individual beliefs and preferences of you and your family in dealing with your illness. The chaplain is available to help you draw on your own religious or spiritual beliefs for strength and healing, to listen with compassion, to provide a calming presence, or to have an open conversation about your hopes, fears, challenges, and triumphs.
