what is supportive care?

Supportive care in cancer is the prevention and management of the adverse effects of cancer and its treatment. Supportive care aims to improve the quality of rehabilitation, secondary cancer prevention, survivorship, and end-of-life care.

our mission

At La Roche-Posay, our mission is to improve quality of life through healthy skin. As skincare experts, we recognize the importance of skin health during cancer treatment. But when it comes to supportive care throughout the full cancer journey, skin health is only one part of the equation, the whole life is affected. 

This is why we have partnered with the Union for International Cancer Control to raise the issue of supportive care, and specifically worked with the Multina MASCC to develop this online resource to provide everyone impacted by a cancer diagnosis with necessary information on supportive care, from the patient to the caregiver, and relatives.
