Gynecological Oncology Nurse Navigator
at the Fox Chase Cancer Center Women's Cancer Center
With an expanded patient navigation program, women who become part of the Women's Cancer Center's cancer treatment are offered individualized, compassionate care with a focus on wellness, stress reduction and quality of life and access to our full scope of research opportunities.
Starting with a woman’s first call for an appointment, our staff works with her to ensure a coordinated, streamlined experience. Her first visit includes a consultation with a team of specialists. If follow-up tests are necessary, we will make every effort to schedule them for the same day as this initial consultation. While her medical team discusses treatment options, a social worker will meet with the patient and her family to review support resources and logistics. In the end, everyone comes together to chart the best course of care. Read more »
