What are some of your experiences as a CoC-trained consultant?
One of the best opportunities I have as a Commission on Cancer-Trained Consultant is meeting oncology leaders all over the country. They are all passionate about the work they do for oncology patients and are unceasingly supportive of the programs and opportunities available to their patients. A cancer patients’ diagnosis and treatment is multidisciplinary which requires cooperation and coordination to a higher degree than many diseases. That coordination requires an attitude of partnership that is always evident when I visit hospitals. Each facility has unique strengths and opportunities for growth, but their commitment to better outcomes for all of us is always the priority.
I enjoy learning about each of the facilities I visit, especially how the hospital came to be and the impact they have had on their community. All of my visits prove health care continues to be changing and healthcare providers are always busy people. Listening to patient navigators and community outreach coordinators allows me to see and understand the patient population and the barriers they may be experiencing. Every hospital is striving to achieve the best possible environment for quality care.
I always feel fortunate and honored to be considered part of a cancer program team.
