Case management is a program designed to assist lung cancer patients in dealing with the practical issues and problems that arise as a result of their diagnosis and treatment.
Q- Who could be my Case Manager?
Your case manager could be a social worker, nurse, financial counselor, or combination of these areas of expertise. A case manager serves as your personal advocate, working with medical practitioners and non-medical staff to help you overcome financial, logistical, and other common barriers to care.
