A cancer patient navigator is an
oncology nurse who is trained
to help identify and resolve real
and perceived barriers to care,
enabling patients to adhere to care recommendations and thus
improve their cancer outcomes. They help patients by meeting
with them and their families, calling them and going to doctors
visits with them when needed. Personal guidance is provided
to patients as they move through their cancer journey. Patients
who have nurse navigators are more involved in their care, more
informed as to how their cancer affects their life, and are usually
better prepared to deal with their cancer.
