Helping Patients
Overview

The health care system can be multifaceted, confusing and overwhelming to patients who are experiencing acute and chronic diseases. As a Patient Navigator you are situated in medical settings, including hospitals and clinics, to advocate on behalf of a patient and act as their primary communication liaison between medical, legal, financial and administrative staff. You are a personal guide to those experiencing health hardship and your efforts positively translate to the ease of challenges, impacts on family members and the overall medical experience in cancer, cardiac, long term, nursing and home care specializations.
