Breast Cancer Patient Navigator

Breast Cancer Patient Navigator and patient

When a patient has been diagnosed with breast cancer, moving through the care process can be complex and sometimes confusing. In continually striving to improve a patient's experience and assist her quest for wellness, ValleyCare is expanding its cancer program with the addition of a Certified Breast Cancer Patient Navigator.

Continuum of Care

The Breast Cancer Patient Navigator will:

  • Answer any patient questions that arise during the screening mammogram process
  • Explain why follow-up tests (ultrasound, biopsy or MRI) are needed and coordinate scheduling
  • Be available to speak with the patient and her family about a cancer diagnosis, and provide breast cancer education and discuss various treatments options
  • Assist with appointment scheduling once the treatment process has been decided by the patient and physician
