What is a Navigator and how they help

The Oncology Nurse Navigator is a professional nurse who has experience working with people with cancer and understands how challenging the journey can be. The navigator helps remove roadblocks to treatment, so that patients are able to keep their appointments, follow their treatment regimen, and receive the support services they need. The goal of the nurse navigator is to make sure that the comprehensive and varied cancer care services offered through health care providers and the community is accessible to all patients. Navigators are the community 411 of cancer care and can answer many questions regarding cancer screening, treatment, follow-up and resources available in your community even if you, a family member, loved one or friend have not been touched by a cancer diagnosis.

Educate and advocate for, and navigate the person with cancer throughout their entire cancer treatment and beyond.

Improve the patient outcomes by working to eliminate barriers to care.
