Breast Health Patient Navigators

Patients of the Norton Cancer Institute Breast Health Program are paired with an oncology-certified nurse “navigator” who specializes in breast health. The patient navigator helps ease stress and increase emotional support for patients and their family members from the point of a suspicious finding through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

A breast health patient navigator:

  • Helps patients navigate the health care system
  • Provides educational materials and resources to promote breast health
  • Provides one-on-one consultations to help patients and family members better understand the diagnosis and treatment options
  • Assists with information gathering
  • Coordinates care and streamlines appointments for quicker treatment
  • Identifies and provides assistance to overcome any barriers to cancer care, such as finances, transportation, language, culture, communication or fear
  • Links patients, caregivers and families to community resources to address specific needs during cancer treatment
  • Leads and facilitates support groups

All services are free and available to anyone in the community regardless of hospital affiliation.
