West Penn Allegheny Health System, Pittsburgh, recently launched a nurse navigator program to aid women with breast cancer. Nurse navigators provide women with compassionate guidance through their initial diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship.
Experienced nurses Marianne Jeffries, BSN, RN, Heather Kennihan, BSN, RN, OCN; Marilyn Holmes, RN; and Karen Schwaderer, BSN, RN, OCN, are serving as the first nurse navigators.
Modeled after the nurse navigator program at Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, West Penn Allegheny Health System's nurse navigator program is currently offered at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, and Forbes Regional Hospital, Monroeville, PA. Plans are to extend it throughout the health system and to patients diagnosed with other types of cancer.
