A multidisciplinary approach to lung care

Lung Cancer CareIf you suspect that you have lung cancer, or know that you need treatment for a lung nodule, the team at Baptist Health Louisville can help make the process smoother and faster for you.

Baptist Health Louisville takes a team approach to lung cancer care, meaning that professionals from the medical and surgical sides work together to plan your care.

During a multidisciplinary conference, these specialists come together to discuss the details of several lung patients' cases and make recommendations. By having this conference, patients are spared several weeks of waiting to see a specialist.

The specialists involved are from:

  • Medical oncology
  • Radiation oncology
  • Pulmonary oncology
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Radiology
  • Pathology

A nurse navigator will personally guide you through the journey from diagnosis to treatment. For more information, call (502) 896-3008 to reach a nurse navigator

Nurse Navigator

A dedicated nurse navigator adds a personal touch to the process, helping guide patients on a one-on-one basis through the journey from diagnosis to treatment. The nurse navigator is a specially trained nurse who helps:

  • Coordinate various tests and appointments with physicians
  • Schedule the multidisciplinary conference
  • Serve as a resource for education and support throughout the diagnostic and treatment process.

The idea is to extend a helping hand to patients who may be feeling really overwhelmed. The goal is to successfully guide them through the system, be a resource to patients and let them know what to expect during hospitalization and treatment.

The multidisciplinary clinic is a valuable service for cancer care patients, providing convenient access to the comprehensive care and resources available at Baptist Health Louisville for lung cancer patients.
