Jackie believes the primary function of an Oncology Nurse Navigator is to remove barriers to care, expedite care in the most efficient way possible and try to alleviate some of the stress that impacts a cancer patient and their families. Jackie works with multidisciplinary teams of physicians, including radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and specialists in all modalities coordinating care for patients and being an advocate for the patient and their families. The role of the Oncology Nurse Navigator never ends, it lasts through the continuum of care from diagnosis through survivorship and end of life. Jackie has over 19 years of Oncology Nursing experience that includes inpatient, outpatient, and radiation oncology positions. Jackie works closely with our Oncology Social Worker to identify barriers to care and patient needs. As the Oncology Nurse Navigator, Jackie strives to improve patient understanding of their individualized care plans, improve communication within the care team, and ultimately have the patient experience better outcomes.
