Oncology Patient Navigation
Medical City has patient navigation services available to their cancer patients. Patient navigators are individuals trained to help cancer patients through the sometimes confusing and complex health care system. The oncology patient navigator position was developed to assist patients with the many challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis. It is often difficult to understand the specific care and treatment options at a time when the patient may be feeling overwhelmed. Our oncology patient navigator is an advanced practice nurse who can be a primary resource for cancer patients and the people who care for them during all stages of care.
The complexity of care and treatment options throughout someone’s cancer journey requires patient education and preparation, which a patient navigator provides. Patients and their families expect timely access to comprehensive cancer treatment and an efficient referral processes throughout our community. In addition, navigators are available to help anticipate potential barriers, whether they are financial, communication, information or transportation related.
