OHSU adds 'patient navigator' to ease cancer care

The Oregonian, March 7, 2008
Continuing a race among Portland hospitals to add services for people with cancer, the Oregon Health & Science University Cancer Institute has hired a "Patient Navigator" to help patients do everything from finding support groups to paying bills. The American Cancer Society is covering part of the salaries for the new staff member who will try to help patients connect with services they need to ease their treatment.
