This includes developing and overseeing the care patients receive from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. The coordinator assesses the patient's needs and informs them of the many multidisciplinary team members available to support them during their cancer journey. The patient and their loved ones receive enhanced teaching of treatment options and procedures. The cancer care coordinator lends emotional support and encouragement, helping the patient to have hope.
