Cancer care can feel like a maze of tests and treatments. And perhaps you’re navigating this maze while experiencing certain emotions in response to receiving a cancer diagnosis, such as fear, sadness and anger. Those feelings may impair your ability to make important decisions about your health and life.
At Trinity Health CancerCare, we recognize that barriers exist to getting the timely, lifesaving care you need. We are dedicated to breaking them down or helping you overcome them and guiding you through your care journey so you can focus on your No. 1 goal: beating cancer.
Patient Navigation Services
During all stages of your care — from the moment you receive a cancer diagnosis through treatment and beyond — you have needs, and they’re important. Our patient navigators deliver solutions that address all aspects of your health, including physical, emotional and spiritual.
- A psychosocial stress screening immediately following cancer diagnosis to examine your psychological well-being and determine if you might benefit from psychosocial care
- Coordination of care before and during treatment through surviving cancer or hospice
- Education to decrease any anxiety about the disease and diagnostic tests and treatments you may undergo
- Referrals to supportive care services that address your physical, emotional and spiritual health, such as nutrition counseling, gentle yoga and chaplain services
