Introduction - Glad to have found you!


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am glad to have found this organization! I am a veteran oncology nurse, but I have recently been asked to develop a lung nurse navigator program for our community hospital. We are primarily a "private practice" community, so organizing and finding patients that are being admitted can be a bit of a challenge! I am often the first nurse to start educating patients about lung cancer. Many of the patients I see have just had their lung cancer removed and are hopeful that they are "done" with cancer! I am glad that I now have a resource I can refer them to for later support and education.

Hi, Gayle, welcome to the group! Another great resource is cancergrace.org (GRACE — Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education). GRACE is led by Dr. Howard "Jack" West, a Seattle oncologist who is an internationally-recognized expert on lung cancer and who gives high priority to promptly answering questions online. A lot of us are "dual citizens" and have the same usernames there as here. Aloha,
