Storyboard Text

  • Hello, my name is Lisa. I am here to see & discuss my breast cancer screening results.
  • Hi, I'm Nurse Katy from the GH Oncology Clinic. How can I help you?
  • GH Oncology Clinic
  • I have cancer & have decided to try chemotherapy, but I don't have money or insurance for my treatments!
  • As a patient advocate,  I will communicate with the patient and educate her about her breast cancer diagnosis & treatment options.
  • As Lisa's advocate, I will check to see if she qualifies for a government financial  assistance program such as Medicaid or any other programs for cancer patients. I will also check to see if there are any support groups in the area she can attend if she would like.
  • GH Oncology Clinic
  • Nurse Advocate; A nurse who speaks for the patient but does not take away the patient's independence.
  • As a patient advocate support is given to the patient & the family. When the patient makes a treatment decision, the nurse does not judge the patient's decision, even if the nurse disagrees with the decision.
  • Advocacy means that the nurse is active in respecting the patient and their rights and insuring that the patient has the education to understand treatment & care needs.
