Receiving support from a nurse navigator can make a difference in the quality of care for newly diagnosed cancer patients. According to the Cancer Nursing journal, nurse navigator programs can improve patient outcomes in cancer care.
A nurse navigator is a professional registered nurse who offers individualized assistance to patients, families and caregivers to help overcome healthcare system barriers. Utilizing the nursing process, a nurse navigator provides education and resources to facilitate informed decision making and timely access to quality health and psychosocial care throughout all phases of the cancer continuum.
