Living the Team Approach
As a patient at Ochsner, you benefit from a truly collaborative approach to cancer treatment. At the very beginning of care, you will be evaluated at a multidisciplinary conference – a roundtable made up of a highly skilled team of physicians, oncology nurses, dieticians, social workers, researchers and other dedicated healthcare professionals. Your referring physician will remain part of our team and will be kept abreast of your progress every step of the way.
And then there’s you, the patient. You and your family are considered vital members of the team as well. The Oncology Nurse Navigator plays a key role in the care process, serving as liaison to help you navigate what could otherwise be a complicated process.
