Social Work & Survivorship Coordinator
Oncology Social Work
Oncology social workers specialize in helping patients and their families deal with problems brought on by a serious illness; social, emotional, financial, or all of the above. Each patient has individual needs and our social workers are committed and trained to assist in a variety of areas. At the Cancer Center at Metro Health Village, our social worker can link you to community resources, aid you with financial assistance, help you connect with support groups, and offer support for stress and anxiety. All information will be kept private and confidential.
The Cancer Center at Metro Health Village is dedicated to helping cancer survivors live their lives to the fullest after treatment. Our survivorship coordinator will work closely with your health care team to develop a comprehensive written care summary and personalized follow-up plan.
The plan addresses dealing with long-term effects of cancer as well as adjusting to other aspects of life after treatment. It also provides guidance on specific follow-up care, prevention, and health maintenance. Our goal is to help survivors experience their life as fully as possible beyond the initial cancer treatment.
