Breast Care Coordinators/Navigators Orientation Manual
New! Breast Care Coordinators/Navigators Orientation Manual
Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners has introduced a new resource to aid nursing professionals who are new to the role of being a nurse navigator in breast cancer. The "Breast Care Coordinators/Navigators Orientation Manual" is designed to help breast care coordinators and nurse navigators as they provide patient education, decision-making support, and overall coordination of care to breast cancer patients. It covers a range of topics, including breast cancer treatment options, symptom management, clinical trials, high-risk programs, and survivorship.
"Our breast care coordinators and nurse navigators possess an impressive wealth of expertise and knowledge, bringing together their collective experience to help guide patients through what can be a very difficult and overwhelming journey," says Elaine Sein, RN, BSN, OCN, CBCN, senior project manager, Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners and coordinator, Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners Breast Care Coordinators/Navigators. "What's even more extraordinary is their dedication and willingness to mentor each other and other nurses as they embark on this career path."
Nurses from Fox Chase Cancer Center collaborated with Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners nurses to develop the manual’s content and provide editorial review. Funding for the manual’s publication was provided by the American Cancer Society through a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer grant.
