Now open: Canada’s only medical clinic for Cancer Fatigue

Welcome to Cancer Fatigue Services! 

Cancer-related fatigue is complex, challenging to manage, and often influenced by a combination of unique medical, behavioural, and psychosocial factors.  However, no previous dedicated multidisciplinary medical fatigue management service has been established to help Canadians with this significant burden. We are Canada’s first medical care service for cancer-related fatigue.

We are dedicated to bridging this gap and ensuring you get the answers you deserve and the care you need to treat your fatigue and the factors causing it.

Cancer-related fatigue: an overlooked and underserved condition

Cancer-related fatigue is arguably the most prevalent and generally debilitating health concern experienced by people living with and after cancer; however, awareness of the etiology, treatments, and supportive care needs for people experiencing cancer-related fatigue is rather limited throughout the medical community. Approximately ⅓rd  of the 1.7 million Canadian cancer survivors (>460,000 people) are living with clinically significant levels of cancer-related fatigue that negatively impact their daily lives. However, cancer-related fatigue is often not addressed by primary care physicians or oncologists, and the most effective treatments for cancer-related fatigue are not currently covered by any provincial health ministries in Canada.

“Before founding Cancer Fatigue Services, there were no medical treatment clinics for cancer-related fatigue in Canada.  Our clinic and team stand out as the first and only medical care service specializing in assessing and treating cancer-related fatigue through an innovative precision medicine-based care model.

Our precision medicine-based care model comprehensively assesses and delivers personalized treatments for the major causes of cancer-related fatigue. This hybrid model of in-person and virtual care options ensures our services are always within reach of our patients, allowing us to increase our reach while simultaneously decreasing patient barriers to engagement. We are working to ensure equitable access to care by prioritizing public- and insurance-funded assessment and treatment services and establishing a Compassionate Coverage for Care Program to ensure that financial constraints do not prevent people who need help from getting it.”

Our Goals Towards that Commitment

We are working hard to create a future where the lives of those affected by cancer are no longer impacted by fatigue.  To accomplish this, we are committed to:

  • Establishing and delivering a high standard of personalized medical care to our patients.
  • Achieving clinically significant and lasting improvements in fatigue and related risks for our patients.
  • Setting new care standards and ensuring appropriate healthcare coverage is available to support the assessment and treatment of cancer-related fatigue.

How We Alleviate & Treat Fatigue

With our comprehensive approach to fatigue care, we are committed to empowering individuals and providing them with the tools and support needed to overcome their fatigue and live life to the fullest.

We conduct comprehensive fatigue assessments, carefully evaluating each person’s unique needs and challenges.  Our team then develops a Personalized Fatigue Care Plan based on the assessment results and works with every individual to ensure their care plan is effective and fits into their lifestyle.  We also offer tailored fatigue counselling sessions, providing individuals with fatigue-related education, prevention tips, and management strategies for fatigue.

Exercise therapy is recognized as the most effective treatment for cancer-related fatigue.  At Cancer Fatigue Services, we offer supervised fatigue and exercise therapy that are unique and customized to every person and will most effectively treat fatigue and associated risks. We offer in-person and virtual exercise therapy sessions to make it as accessible as possible for everyone.
