Oncology Nurse Navigator
Many patients and family members are overwhelmed by a cancer diagnosis. Suddenly, you are faced with an array of decisions, medical specialists and unfamiliar language. At Asante, it is our goal to provide you with the support you need throughout your diagnosis and treatment.
Your oncology nurse navigator will help you and your family understand the diagnosis and treatment options to ensure that you have the information you need to participate in your own care and make informed decisions.
They can help you gather information and fill in any gaps in knowledge, coordinate the scheduling of appointments, improve communication with your medical team and guide you through the health care system.
The navigator is someone you can turn to for answers and to address your immediate concerns. She will offer emotional support and encouragement and is committed to helping you throughout your cancer journey.
