Your Tanner Cancer Care navigators are a consistent point of contact for you and your family. They offer practical and emotional support, connecting you with additional resources you or your loved ones may need.
Our navigators help with scheduling, referrals and paperwork. They also serve as a liaison between you and your care team during treatment and recovery, answering questions and explaining treatment options, symptoms, side effects, coping strategies and more.
Navigating Your Cancer Journey at Tanner Cancer Care
One major difference between Tanner Cancer Care and
other cancer treatment providers: you’ll get your own, dedicated patient
navigator. Our navigators work with you on scheduling appointments, explain
your care, answer your questions and help you overcome any obstacles to
treatment you encounter. They also open the door to all the resources of a
regional health system, making sure you have a holistic approach to care.
