End of treatment

Things to consider towards the final stages of ALK+ NSCLC

Unfortunately, for some people, there may come a time when there are no longer any therapies that their healthcare team believe offer greater benefit than risk of side effects. In these instances, your healthcare team may suggest that you begin to consider aspects of end-of-life care.

These are highly sensitive topics, so if you don’t feel that this information is relevant to you, or you feel you would like more support discussing these matters, consider confiding in a close friend, family member or your healthcare team for additional support. You could also reach out to a local charity.

This section of the website will cover topics including how to have difficult conversations with people at this stage of your cancer, personal aspects you may wish to consider, and will also provide some information for anybody in your life who has been helping to care for you who may also need some additional support.
