The major work in the centre is screening
for early detection of cancer cases refered from other hospitals
and patients coming voluntarily.Prime importance is also given
to conduct cancer detection camps and awareness programmes
in remote areas of Palakkad and other northern districts of
Kerala.Diagnosed cases were refered to RCC or wherever easly
accessible to the patient for proper treatment and management.
The pain and palliative care clinic started
in 1997 is going on in full swing according to WHO guidelines.A
doctor from RCC visiting once in a month is giving guidance
in management of incurable and advanced cases.Follow-up of
cancer patients treated RCC or in other cancer hospitals and
few chemotherapy cases were also attended.
