2019 BRFSS Survey Results: Medicaid Region 5

Cancer Survivorship

A patient navigator is a trained professional who helps guide a patient through the healthcare system, which may include help going through the screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of cancer.
Patient navigators may also help patients communicate with healthcare providers, insurance companies, employers, case managers, and/or lawyers to assist patients in obtaining emotional, social, legal or financial support.
At what point during the course of your cancer treatment were you introduced to your patient navigator?*

are NOT comparable to 2010 and earlier years.

Regional demographic estimates have been suppressed because they do not meet statistical reliability standards.
