Helping Patients Find Their Way
It can be hard for cancer patients to find their way through the health care system. Patient Navigator services at Huntsman Cancer Institute can help. All patient navigator services are free.
Navigators make sure patients, caregivers, and doctors understand each other and get needed services. Patient navigators help in many ways:
- Provide information about what to expect
- Coordinate appointments
- Establish and help maintain communication between the patient and health care team
- Arrange interpreters for appointments
- Refer to community support services
- Locate financial support and help complete forms
