The Oncology Nurse Navigators serve as a patient liaison to help patients and family members navigate the complex healthcare system. The Nurse Navigator will establish early contact with the cancer patients to identify and eliminate barriers to timely diagnosis and treatment. They will assess clinical, emotional, spiritual, psychosocial, financial and other patient needs. They work with the multidisciplinary team to provide improved comprehensive oncology services to our patients.
The Navigators are responsible for scheduling test, procedures, appointments and treatments, as well as initiating and completing the survivorship care plan. Our Nurse Navigator’s assist in directing patients and families to available community resources and supportive services. They also serve as a clinical resource with expertise in oncology care management and help to reinforce education with patients and families.
