Clinical social workers

By using evidence-based interventions, our clinical social workers at Queen of the Valley Medical Center are concentrated on helping individuals and families address the emotional and psychosocial impacts a cancer diagnosis can bring. As part of the multidisciplinary cancer team, the role of a clinical social worker is to help individuals cope through diagnosis, treatment and in transitions of care, providing:

  • Counseling for anxiety, depression, adjustment, insomnia and other emotions and symptoms related to cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Assistance with practical resource needs
  • Advance care planning
  • Family meetings
  • Goals of care conversations
  • Referrals to local, regional, and national resources as needed

By working collaboratively within the cancer team and with community partners, our clinical social workers provide individuals with thoughtful, supportive and individualized care.

Nurse Navigators

Our nurse navigators assist patients who are diagnosed with lung cancer, cancers of the head and neck and breast cancer throughout the continuum of care. Navigators assist patients, providers, and staff by:

  • Providing and clarifying information
  • Ensuring care coordination
  • Helping patients navigate their care from diagnosis, through each stage of treatment and beyond
  • Managing symptoms through information sharing and education

The focus of our nurse navigators is to help find solutions to barriers that impact access to care. Nurse navigators are focused on patient empowerment, and they act as a bridge ensuring there are no gaps in care for our patients. Nurse navigators provide a team-oriented, patient-centered treatment experience for every patient.
