What is patient navigation? Cancer Support Community guest host Linda House discusses this topic with Lillie Shockney, a registered nurse and an expert on patient navigation during the cancer experience. Lillie has been the administrative director of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center since 1997.

A two-time breast cancer survivor, published author and nationally recognized speaker on the subject of breast cancer, Lillie has worked tirelessly to improve the care of breast cancer patients around the world. On today’s show, Linda and Lillie will define patient navigation, explore case studies and show how this kind of patient-centered care is having an impact on patients and the health care community
