Patient Navigation Services

The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB offers navigation services to all new cancer patients at UAB Medicine. The navigation team works directly with patients and their caregivers to help ensure a personalized and coordinated care experience – from diagnosis and treatment to survivorship.

The team is made up of registered nurses with oncology experience and special training in navigation. Our oncology nurse navigators, along with oncology-trained care guides (patient navigators), actively connect patients with the many support services available at our center and address any issues that may arise during the cancer treatment journey.

Our navigators serve on disease-specific teams to ensure that each patient’s unique needs are identified and addressed and that the details of care are carefully coordinated. Alongside our clinic staff, navigators help answer questions, recommend educational materials, coordinate treatment plans, and resolve any problems.

Our goal is to support our patients and their caregivers every step of the way.
