The Breast Cancer Patient Navigator helps patients and their families access the health care delivery system through outreach, follow-up, support, education, communication, and resources. This support begins at the point of a suspicious finding and continues throughout treatment to the resolution of the finding. Working under the supervision of the director of Community Benefits and collaborating with Breast Oncology Department and with Patient and Family Services, the patient navigator works with medically underserved populations and communities to improve their cancer care outcomes.
