The role of pivot nurses
Pivot nurses assess the resources and health needs of patients and the needs of their family, if relevant.
- They educate patients on the disease, its treatments, its impact and on the follow-up they will need in the short, intermediate and long term.
- They help patients navigate the care and services available and refer them to other health care professionals or community resources that can best meet their needs.
- They provide support to people with cancer and their loved ones.
- They ensure the coordination and continuity of care among all members of the health care team.
