Oncology Nurse Navigation

Nurses station

Medical City Dallas has oncology nurse navigators available to our cancer patients. Nurse navigators are individuals trained to help cancer patients through the sometimes confusing and complex healthcare system. The oncology nurse 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 feel 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 the cancer journey requires patient education and preparation, which a patient navigator provides. Patients and their families expect timely access to comprehensive cancer treatment and efficient referral processes throughout our community. In addition, navigators are available to help anticipate potential barriers, whether they they relate to finances, communication, information or transportation.
