The journey through cancer is a challenging one that often leaves people feeling lost.
At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, our clinical nurse navigators help bring continuity, peace of mind and hope to patients and their loved ones by guiding them along the bumpy and intimidating path through cancer care.
The clinical nurse navigator works with patients and families to ensure they receive fully integrated, holistic care that addresses their unique emotional, physical and psychological needs.
These registered nurses, each with backgrounds in oncology nursing, are liaisons between patients and medical teams. They help identify and overcome challenges that may hinder recovery, and even help coordinate complex appointments and procedures.
By making the process smoother and more accommodating, clinical nurse navigators help patients and loved ones focus on healing.
