Background

In my role as the Patient/Family Education Specialist, I work with the Division of Oncology to plan, organize, develop and implement education programs related to oncology diagnosis and treatment. I meet regularly with patients and families, providing education and helping them to navigate an oncology diagnosis. I serve as a resource for inpatient and outpatient Oncology nurses to provide education at the bedside. Through my work with both inpatient and outpatient oncology populations, I also focus on improving and facilitating a family’s transition from inpatient to outpatient care.
