Moving through the breast care or cancer care continuum is a complex and highly individualized process. This complexity is significantly reduced with the assistance of our Nurse Navigators, registered nurses who assist patients through every stage of their care. Our Nurse Navigators help patients as they move through one of our navigation staging groups: breast imaging stages or breast cancer diagnosis and treatment stages.
The Nurse Navigator assists patients with:
- Understanding the continuum of care. This generally begins with discussions of exam findings and procedure options.
- Facilitating contact with appropriate staff or physicians on whom patients depend for services and support throughout their care.
- Identifying resources available to them at various times as needed.
- Empowering them to become informed participants in their breast health and cancer care program.
