Multi-Specialty Nurse Case Managers
Multi-Specialty Clinic Nurse Case Managers (CM) work alongside physicians in multi-disciplinary teams dedicated to different types of cancers, as well as non-cancer hematology disorders. The case manager will provide patients with information about their illness and their treatment plan and help patients navigate the healthcare system. He or she is available to answer questions and to ensure that any symptoms resulting from illness or treatment are managed.
Bone Marrow Transplant
Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) are a way to treat several of the blood-related cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, as well as some solid tumor cancers. Our BMT Team utilizes BMT Coordinators and Nurse Case Managers.
BMT Coordinators work patients and their families to ensure that they receive all the information and support needed to prepare for treatment. Coordinators work closely with physicians, social workers, and administrative staff to arrange all pre-treatment appointments and tests.
BMT Nurse Case Managers provide care for patients who are not being treated with BMT or HCST, as well as those who have completed BMT and HCST (after the 100 day period). They provide education about illness and treatment, manage symptoms, and assist you in navigating the healthcare system. They also work closely with the multidisciplinary staff to ensure that patients receive the full array of services needed to meet their individual needs, throughout the 100-day period following treatment.
Radiation Oncology Nurse Case Managers are an integral part of care for every patient receiving radiation therapy. They ensure that patients and their family members know exactly what to expect during and beyond the treatment experience. Radiation oncology nurses are available to assess patient needs, and work closely with our physicians, radiation technicians, social workers, and other team members to make certain those needs are met.
Infusion Center nurses are highly trained to administer complex treatment regimens; each maintains chemotherapy/biotherapy provider training from the Oncology Nursing Society, the organization responsible for national oncology nursing guidelines. The majority of Moores Cancer Center infusion nurses have earned their OCN, the specialty certification awarded by the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation.
Procedure Suite nurses assist with numerous treatments associated with cancer diagnostics, as well as state-of-the-art pain management procedures. These nurses escort patients throughout the process and provide information and support that guarantees minimal stress or discomfort during unfamiliar procedures.
Our Nurse Liaison is the critical bridge between inpatient and outpatient services to ensure continuity of care at all points. This nurse is available to answer questions and to assist in navigating the sometimes complex structure connecting specialty services.
