Patient Navigators | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

Patient Navigators

Patient navigators offer support and education for patients with any type of cancer. Patient Navigator Program nurses are available to help ease stress and offer emotional support for the entire family at no cost.
From the point of a suspicious finding through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, our patients, their caregivers and their family members have access to a navigator as often as needed.

A patient navigator assists with:

  • Education regarding cancer diagnosis, staging and treatment
  • Timely communication among patients, physicians and primary caregivers
  • Coping with physical and emotional needs
  • Scheduling and coordinating staging studies, consultations and referrals to improve convenience and minimize treatment delays
  •  Connecting patients with appropriate health care and community resources
  • Access to a multidisciplinary, team-based approach to care
  • Transition between physicians’ offices and clinics
  • Identifying and addressing barriers to timely and appropriate treatment

Patient navigation services are free and available as often as needed by patients and families.
