We understand that being treated for cancer can be difficult and confusing. This is particularly true when your treatment is provided in multiple locations such as an outpatient clinic, inpatient hospital room, a skilled nursing facility, rehabilitation hospital, or even at home. We know that successful coordination of your care requires detailed planning across these many different treatment locations.
Moving between care settings, such as from a hospital admission to home, is referred to as “transitions in care.” Oncology transitional care coordinators are medical social workers working with your oncology team to ensure seamless transitions in your care while providing emotional support to you and your families during a stressful time.
The good news is that you do not need to contact a Transitional Care Coordinator; we will come to you when you are admitted to our hospital. The Transitional Care Coordinator is part of your cancer care team and will work with you and your family to make sure that all aspects of your cancer care are coordinated and seamless for you.
