Dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, but having a personal guide to help you navigate the process can make a big difference. That's why Subang Jaya Medical Centre has implemented the role of a Cancer Care Coordinator, who focuses on supporting cancer patients and their families. From diagnosis to recovery and well-being, the Cancer Care Coordinator is the key person who connects patients and their families to the services and support they need for the best possible experience.
The Cancer Care Coordinator provides evidence-based information and resources to support decision-making by patients and families. They work alongside the clinical team, which may include surgeons, clinical oncologists, nurses, and allied health teams, to coordinate patient treatment pathways. The coordinator can also help patients with emotional support, understanding their treatment plan, being better prepared for their consultations and treatment, and coping with their cancer journey.
Coming to the hospital can be a daunting experience, as the healthcare system can sometimes seem complex. The Cancer Care Coordinator is here to help patients and their families build confidence through knowledge to manage their care better and find a way forward in their cancer journey. It's about the proper support at the right time for patients.
At Subang Jaya Medical Centre, we understand the importance of comprehensive care for our cancer patients. Our Cancer Care Coordinator is an essential component of our supportive treatment. We aim to help our patients navigate their cancer journey with confidence and support. We invite you to visit us at SJMC and speak to our team of experts about how we can help you on your cancer journey.
