Navigating Your Cancer Journey

Because the diseases of cancer are complex, Baylor Carrollton's Patient Navigation Program offers assistance to cancer patients and their families in navigating through the system for cancer care.

Following an initial cancer diagnosis, the decisions can often be overwhelming in terms of the different types of physicians you may need to see or the many decisions you will need to make. The patient navigator understands your needs and provides the ability for you to focus on healing.

A patient navigator is a registered nurse (RN) who is available to you and your family as an advocate, guide and moral supporter that can assist you from initial diagnosis through your recovery.

The patient navigator will:

  • Help you gather all your medical records
  • Coordinate referrals to cancer specialists that have expertise in diagnosing and treating cancer
  • Assist with accessing specialists and scheduling appointments
  • Coordinate access to services and other resources needed
  • Answer general questions about cancer
  • Help you and your caregiver understand your personalized plan of care
  • Keep track of your treatment progress
  • Provide information to make your visits easier, such as directions, parking, transportation and hotels
  • Provide information on cancer research trials

For more information about Baylor Carrollton's Patient Navigation Program, contact our oncology nurse navigator at 972.512.1256.
