A Personalized Approach for Lung Cancer
Your Nurse Coordinator
Telephone: (814) 836-2674
Lung cancer treatment can take a significant toll on patients and their families. To ease this burden a nurse coordinator serves as a point person for the treatment team, working with each patient and their family to guide them through every step of the diagnosis and treatment initiation. A social worker, palliative care nurse, dietician, and financial counselor are additional resources for clinic patients. The nurse coordinator reviews each patient’s history and makes appropriate appointments based on the patient’s needs and the team’s recommendations.
