Finding answers to your cancer care questions
A diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming. Questions like “Where do I turn?", “Which doctor is best for me?”, and “Should I get a second opinion” are common. At Ingalls Cancer Care, we’ve got answers.
Whether you’re looking for a referral to a cancer specialist; want more information about your specific type of cancer; or are seeking information about the newest cancer treatments available, we’ll help you find your way.
Our Setting the Course program was specially designed for newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families, and serves as a primer to our cancer program and services. A multidisciplinary team of research nurses, nurse navigators, and cancer support center professionals focus on educating newly diagnosed cancer patients about the continuum of services available, including diagnostic, research, treatment, support and survivorship.
At Ingalls Cancer Care, we understand that fighting cancer is a journey – and no two journeys are alike. So we work with each patient to connect them to the best resources, here or anywhere, to fight their cancer. If you or a loved one is newly diagnosed with cancer, you’re not alone. Get connected to our cancer specialists. For more information, call 708.915.HOPE (4673), or continue your tour of Ingalls Cancer Care with the Patient Guide.
Ingalls Nurse Navigators. Helping you find your way.
If you are facing a diagnosis of cancer, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and confused by both your diagnosis and the complexity of the treatment plan. Ingalls is making that journey easier with the help of your own Nurse Navigator – an expert on your side.
Ingalls Cancer Care Nurse Navigators are experienced oncology nurses, which means you won't surprise or stump them with difficult questions about your cancer or your treatment. Your Nurse Navigator is an expert clinician and personal advocate who is your go-to person and will be at your side to help you understand your cancer and treatment plan.
It’s also reassuring to know that from the moment you enter our cancer program until your treatment is complete, there’s somebody by your side. One of our Nurse Navigators is available to answer questions, explain test results or medications, schedule appointments, coordinate treatments…or just listen. Your Nurse Navigator will de-mystify the treatment path, and ensure you benefit from the best, most personally appropriate care. Your Ingalls Cancer Care Nurse Navigator can even connect you with hospitals and expertise outside the Ingalls system. The goal is to provide the best care, wherever your path leads.
At Ingalls, your Nurse Navigator will:
- Help coordinate your appointments, tests, and treatments with your entire Ingalls Cancer Care team.
- Help explain in easy-to-understand language the goals, benefits, and risks of treatment choices.
- Provide individualized support on symptom management and nutritional coaching before, during, and after treatment.
- Participate in weekly cancer conferences with doctors and nurses to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Get connected to your very own Ingalls cancer expert now. To learn more about our Nurse Navigators, call 708.915.HOPE (4673), or read Nurse Navigator - Helping you find your way.
