Cancer diagnosis and treatment can be an overwhelming and confusing time. Cancer nurse navigators step in as your guide and advocate, helping you through your entire cancer treatment.
It’s not easy to hear the words "you have cancer." The emotions can be overwhelming as you struggle with a seemingly endless list of questions and treatment decisions.
As registered nurses, specially trained in cancer care, cancer nurse navigators serve as a guide and advocate for you and your family. Through each phase of treatment your navigator works with your entire care team to coordinate the best care possible, while also helping you regain control and maximize the quality of your life.
Your nurse navigator is here to address any questions or concerns you may have about cancer or your health. They are an important member of your care team and will help you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. If needed, you will be accompanied to appointments to help you understand the complex language of cancer care at a time when you may be feeling overwhelmed.
