Personalized Cancer Care From a Nurse Navigator
Swedish Edmonds Breast Center offers patients a special service -- a breast health nurse navigator. The Swedish Edmonds nurse navigator is a registered nurse who assists patients with making sense of their cancer diagnosis – educating patients and their families on what their unique diagnosis means and offering supportive care in all aspects of their treatment to help decrease anxiety.
The navigator works closely with radiologists, pathologists, medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, and the primary care doctor to make sure that the entire team is on the same page when formulating a plan that will provide the exceptional medical care that the patient is relying on.
“As a nurse, I have 25 years of helping people deal with sudden crisis and assisting them beyond the initial shock of diagnosis, through their entire treatment course” says Michele Stewart, RN, breast health nurse navigator at Swedish Edmonds. “I want the patient to know they’re in control of their cancer care, to encourage them to collaborate with physicians to decide on the best treatment options and to know that I’ll be by their side every step of the way.”
