- Multi-disciplinary physician involvement in care planning
- Cancer prevention programs
- Continuing clinical education

Accreditation by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer lets patients know they are receiving the best care available - patient-focused treatment based on the latest science.

Clinical Trials Program
Patients at the Emanuel Cancer Center have the opportunity to take part in some of the country's most exciting clinical research. As an affiliate of Stanford Hospital & Clinics, the Emanuel Cancer Center's physicians are able to offer new and innovative treatment options to our patients. By participating in a clinical trial, our patients have the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of cancer treatment while at the same time contributing to helping to find the next great treatment choice for patients everywhere.
Clinical trials are research studies that give patients access to new medications or, to established, FDA approved treatments now being given in new combinations, to improve their health and cancer care. Each study tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat cancer.
For more information about clinical trials, phone Joyce Porter, clinical trials manager, at 209-664-5036.

- Mobilize support systems, including family and community resources, to enhance emotional support for patients and families while respecting their dignity, confidentiality and rights
