Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Health Support Services
At Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Health, we work hard to ensure each of our cancer patients receives the most comprehensive individualized cancer care. We offer each patient and his or her family access to an oncology-specialized nurse navigator, numerous locations throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky, genetic counseling, multidisciplinary conferences and access to Sarah Cannon clinical trials.
A nurse navigator is a member of your multidisciplinary care team who serves as an advocate and educator for you and your family during and after your cancer journey. Nurse navigators facilitate communication between your entire care team, help coordinate appointments and transportation and are there to address any other barriers you may face during your cancer journey.
Multidisciplinary conferences are meetings where doctors across specialties come together to discuss a personalized treatment plan for your cancer. Patients and their families can be assured they are receiving the best treatment plan from a team of expert physicians at TriStar Health and across the Sarah Cannon network.
Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Health also offers many support groups for patients throughout and after the cancer journey:
- Look Good, Feel Better at TriStar Summit
