Quality of Life

At the heart of all City of Hope activities is the credo: There is no profit in curing the body if in the process we destroy the soul. This philosophy underscores one of City of Hope’s primary considerations: quality of life. Investigators under the direction of Marcia Grant, RN, DNSc, and Betty Ferrell, RN, PhD, FAAN, in the Department of Nursing Research and Education, have initiated numerous multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed research projects focusing on improving quality of life. In addition to research on pain management, City of Hope also offers services for patients such as image consulting for patients facing changes in their appearance due to treatment, and psychosocial services such as counseling.
