Cancer Patient Navigation Program

A cancer patient navigator can help you and your family understand the many challenges you may face and any questions you have about your cancer journey.

How will I know what treatment option to choose?

The cancer patient navigator will help you work through some of the challenges of cancer treatment.

The navigator will be able to:

  • explain what you can expect during appointments and treatments;
  • connect you with other professionals who can support you throughout your cancer care: social workers, dieticians, home care services and spiritual care providers;
  •  introduce you to community support groups specific to your cancer or to support programs like the Look Good Feel Better and Moving Forward programs; and
  • help you sort out financial worries for travel and medication.
