Navigation Program

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be life-changing. At MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, our Navigation Program is at the core of the patient experience. Members of the navigation team are made up of highly trained professionals and laypersons that specialize in your cancer type. Before your first appointment is scheduled, your navigation team, which includes a nurse navigator and administrative staff along with peer counselors for patients in the breast cancer program, works behind the scenes to provide personal assistance in helping each patient access the care you need.

Your navigation team is dedicated to your personal cancer journey. They provide personalized care coordination, connect patients with support resources, assist with timely and complete care by preventing treatment delays, communicate with physicians and other members of the healthcare team, and help patients understand their cancer diagnosis and treatment options. Your navigation team allows you – the patient— and your family to focus solely on your cancer treatment and recovery.
