Each brain tumor diagnosis is unique, and the recommended course of treatment should be as well. Your navigation team helps you to understand an informed plan of care wherever you are on your treatment path.
What is Personalized Navigation?
Trying to understand the intricacies of brain tumor treatment can quickly become a tremendously overwhelming experience. Our Navigators understand the ins and outs of brain tumors and work with you to develop a plan of care that matches your priorities and goals.
We will be your guide through the complexities of the healthcare system. With personalized navigation, you are the priority.
Watch Dr. Susan Chang, Director of the Division of Neuro-Oncology, UC San Francisco, explain personalized navigation.
We use a dual-navigation model, meaning every patient receives access to and support from an experienced Nurse Navigator and a Social Work Navigator, both educated in primary brain tumor care.
This dedicated co-navigation team provides one-on-one, personalized support specific to your needs across a range of free services.
