Within the Cancer Navigation Program there are two Nurse Navigators who are Registered Nurses and one Oncology Medical Social Worker; all team members will work closely with the patient their families, and their health care team to offer assistance and direction through their cancer journey. 

A Cancer Navigator (Nurse, Social Worker, or both) will act as the patient’s guide through the cancer care system and can be your primary contact to answer questions and coordinate care between all members of your healthcare team. 

The Cancer Navigators will partner with you and provide supports to meet your emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs. The Cancer Navigators will also provide information and resources to best prepare you for appointments, tests, and treatments, and help connect you with valuable community resources. 

The Cancer Navigation Program is for any patients and their support networks that are impacted by cancer, and reside in the NWT.
