The goal of navigation is to reduce cancer morbidity and mortality by eliminating barriers to timely access to cancer care, which may be financial, psychological, logistic, or related to communication or the healthcare delivery system.

The Oncology Patient Navigator is a professional health care provider dedicated to helping cancer patients, families and caregivers navigate the many systems needed before, during and after diagnosis.
