2019 BRFSS Survey Results: North Carolina Regions

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.
Did you work with one or more patient navigator at any point during or after the course of your cancer treatment?*

*Asked of respondents that have a cancer diagnosis.

See Technical Notes for counties in Local Health Director, State and AHEC regions.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2019 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2019 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
