Sage Bolte emphasizes how important the oncology navigator is in normalizing open and honest discussions about sexuality with their patients, and suggests ways for navigators to start the conversation and show that they care about their patients' sexual health.
As the Director for Corporate Oncology Navigation at Ballad Health, Zilipah Cruz believes that the 2018 AONN+ Annual Conference helped her understand the needs of the oncology navigators at her institution. While oncology navigators help remove the barriers that keep patients from getting the appropriate treatment, administrators like her help remove the barriers that oncology navigators face.
Steve Pittman sees overlap in the roles of the oncology navigator and the social worker in providing psychosocial support. He believes one of the most important jobs for either oncology team member is to simply listen to the patient.
