     The Peter Brojde Lung Cancer Centre

 

The Peter Brojde Lung Cancer Centre (PBLCC) is dedicated to the care of patients with lung cancer. The PBLCC, came into being thanks to the extraordinary generosity and vision of Peter Brojde’s wife and family.  The Centre, which was officially opened in 2012, is situated in a purpose-built area on the 10th floor of the E-pavilion within the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital.  The PBLCC draws on philosophies and evidenced-based practices in oncology and supportive care while striving to include appropriate, selected treatments from traditional Chinese Medicine and other complementary therapies. The aim is to achieve the best results with anti-cancer treatments while helping minimise symptoms and improve quality of life, health and healing for all patients. The incorporation of complementary therapies is an important and valued aspect of our approach as we seek to offer care that is holistic and personalized to meet the needs of each patient and their family.  Research is an immensely important part of the founding concept for the PBLCC.  Both clinical and laboratory research in all aspects of Lung Cancer care are vital if we are to achieve improvements in the success of treatments.  Specifically the PBLCC is actively involved in offering patients with Lung Cancer opportunities to participate in clinical studies of new promising anti-cancer treatments, as well as pursuing innovative original research to maximise the beneficial effects of complementary treatments.
