For many of our patients, battling cancer is an all-encompassing effort. Patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer have the added support of a specialized oncology nurse navigator to help them through their diagnosis and treatment.
Nurse navigators provide a direct point of contact for patients who have questions about their diagnosis and treatment, help patients deal with a myriad of issues throughout their care and refer them to a variety of resources to help them with their individual needs. Nurse navigators attend weekly multidisciplinary conferences, to discuss each individual patient’s case and status.
