Nurse navigation

Oncology nurse navigators will help you make your way through the overwhelming, sometimes confusing journey that typically accompanies a diagnosis of cancer. Navigation will teach you about your specific type of cancer and help you understand the information you receive from your doctors. Nurse navigators assist with facilitating and coordinating initial appointments with oncology specialists, as well as to ensure patients have access to timely care. Nurses can also refer patients to various other resources within UCHealth and the community.
