CAREpath™ Navigation System

Being diagnosed with cancer is traumatic and often patients feel confused and lonely, not knowing where to turn for help.

The CAREpath Navigation Program is designed to provide information, advice and support. After contacting CAREpath, an oncology nurse is assigned who will provide support and advice from diagnosis until treatment is complete or as long as necessary.  “Continuity of care” is a significant feature of the program, and having a dedicated nurse who will manage the case and communicate so that caregivers understand the information. 

How it works
