Sakif Shamim, Managing Director, Labaid Cancer Hospital & Super Speciality Centre
Long-term care for cancer patients is based on a holistic and comprehensive strategy that pays great attention to the patient's entire health. As a result, a treatment strategy must be devised that addresses all of the pain related components of cancer, from its origins to its symptoms. In order to accomplish this, a cancer centre or comprehensive and multidisciplinary care is needed, where professionals from diverse medical disciplines co-operate to plan, assess, and execute cancer therapy. In Bangladesh, this facility is first ever introduced by the Labaid Cancer Hospital under the leadership of Sakif Shamim.
