Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wiebe "My philosophy is to take care of patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancers throughout their whole lives. Given my rigorous training in both medical oncology and palliative medicine, I tailor recommendations from the day of diagnosis based on the patient's personal hopes and values. In my GI oncology clinic, patient discussions will focus primarily on quality of life and expectations to help guide our shared decisions.  In the role of palliative care consultant, we are called for some kind of distress or suffering. I believe that our purpose is to flesh out the cause of the distress with an empathic ear and facilitate resolution as able. Sometimes this results in a hospice admission, while other times supports better communication. "
