Get in Touch with my Oncology Team
Get in touch
The best way to reach your oncology team is to contact the oncology pivot nurse (OPN). OPNs play a central role in the care team. During your first meeting with your OPN, she will give you her contact information.
Not everyone with cancer has access to an oncology pivot nurse. If you need to reach your oncologist, ask to speak to his or her secretary. Your message will be passed on to your oncologist, along with your file to make sure he or she has all the information needed for your phone call. You can also ask your oncologist directly how to get in touch if a problem arises.
Many professionals of the oncology team hand out their contact information so patients can get in touch with them if needed. Carefully store all this information in a single place (e.g. your Oncology Passport).
