Cancer Patient Navigation
Get guidance and support when you need it.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis may leave you wondering where to begin. The certified cancer nurse navigators at Novant Health Cancer Institute offer personalized guidance to help you navigate the information and appointments needed for your treatment. Our trained specialists support your physical and emotional needs throughout your journey.
What is patient navigation?
A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. It is not uncommon for anxiety and worry about what lies ahead to take your focus away from your daily life. Our patient navigation program is designed to help ease these stresses by giving you access to specially trained registered nurses who can answer your questions, explain treatment plans, and provide support before, during and after cancer treatment.
Your personal guide
Treating cancer requires a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists. Your dedicated nurse navigator helps you understand what each specialist provides and works with your care teams to make getting care easier for you. Many patients rely on their nurse navigator as a trusted, caring resource who focuses on their needs and guides them through their treatment.
Your connection to cancer resources
Nurse navigators for cancer patients are available at most of the Novant Health cancer locations. They're knowledgeable about the community resources available to you as you undergo treatment. Your nurse navigator can connect you with the right providers and services to support your care and recovery so you can focus on your personal life at home.
