Cancer Nurse Navigators & Social Worker

An experienced team, here for you

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming - the emotions, the unknown, the decisions.

At Bryan, we have specially trained nurses and social workers to help you and your family through each step of your cancer care and treatment. These nurses are called oncology nurse navigators. Oncology is the medical term for cancer.

Here for you

We're here for you - to support and help you with compassion and expertise, to relieve some of the stress and uncertainty in your life, and to help you determine and navigate your best course of treatment.

Our oncology certified nurse navigators will:

  • Provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your cancer care
  • Help you understand all of your treatment options specific to your diagnosis and the stage of your cancer
  • Coordinate appointments, tests and referrals to other services such as nutrition and physical therapy
  • Communicate with all your providers about your treatment plan and follow up
  • Identify potential barriers to care and provide resources to ensure you receive the best and most timely care possible
  • Provide emotional support and understanding to you and your family
  • Serve as a continuous point of contact for you and your family, throughout your cancer care

Our oncology social worker will:

  • Help you understand your diagnosis and treatment
  • Help you cope with your diagnosis and the many emotions you may be experiencing
  • Offer supportive counseling to you and your family, and make referrals to community counselors
  • Provide information on programs that offer financial assistance
  • Answer questions about social security, disability, insurance and advance directives
  • Help arrange transportation to and from medical appointments

This is a free service for our patients.

You are not alone. We'll take this journey together.
