Cancer care can involve seeing several specialist physicians, undergoing multiple diagnostic tests and discussing varied treatment options—a process that can be frightening and overwhelming to many patients. That’s why Carroll Hospital Center offers a free nurse navigator service.
Our nurse navigators are registered nurses who work with patients with all types and stages of cancer, guiding you through your diagnosis, treatment and recovery to ease and optimize your care at every step. Our nurse navigator services include:
“Many cancer patients initially feel a loss of control over their lives. But knowing what to expect and having someone to talk to helps them regain some of that control and focus on treatment and recovery,” says Eileen Overfelt, R.N., B.S.N., manager of The Women’s Place and nurse navigator. “From the time a patient is faced with a pending diagnosis, we provide the one-on-one support patients need as they plan a course of treatment with their physician.”
