When you arrive at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, you will be met by your nurse navigator—an oncology-certified or master’s prepared oncology nurse—who will be on hand to answer your questions throughout your entire treatment.
Your nurse navigator is part of your personal cancer care management team, a group of ChristianaCare professionals who will be there when you need them. Your team will include nurses, doctors, social workers, cancer research nurses, a health psychologist, a genetic counselor, registered dietitians, financial assistants, a pastoral counselor, rehabilitation therapists, complementary medicine providers and community-service representatives. Your nurse navigator will work closely with the members of your team to help you get the care and support services you need, both in and out of the hospital.
