Cancer Care - IV Therapy

IV therapies are treatments that are administered via intravenous (IV) infusion. The IV administration allows much higher concentrations of a substance to be achieved and circulate in the blood than what is possible by other routes of administration. The use of IV therapies can have different effects than taking the same substances orally.

IV treatments are provided in a group setting at the OICC by Registered Nurses (RNs) and IV-certified Naturopathic Doctors (NDs).

IV therapies may:

  • Support quality of life during treatment for cancer
  • Reduce cancer-treatment related symptoms including: fatigue, nausea, and lack of appetite
  • Improve treatment outcomes or slow cancer progression

IV therapies at the OICC are intended as supportive therapies and are not be used as alternatives to chemotherapy, radiation, surgery or other prescribed treatments. 

Eligibility for IV therapy is determined through visits with your OICC care team. IV therapies are not suitable for every patient under our care.
