Grace Sauzier, a nurse navigator at Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute, was recently honored as the 2014 Oncology Nurse Navigator (ONN) Life Changer Award winner for the commitment and compassion she demonstrates in her role. Grace was nominated by one of her breast cancer patients, who was directly impacted by Grace’s guidance and support.
The award, which is distributed annually, is sponsored by Health Monitor in collaboration with the Academy of Nurse Navigators AONN. It will be presented to Grace at the organization’s national meeting on September 20. Grace has served patients at the Institute for more than 8 years, helping them navigate their journey with breast cancer throughout every stage of diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
“Caring for breast cancer patients, and helping them work through the various concerns and questions that arise throughout their course of treatment is my passion, said Grace. “I am honored that these patients appreciate, and feel benefited by my services, which are demonstrated by our entire team of nurse navigators, on a daily basis.”
Levine Cancer Institute’s team of nurse navigators provide individualized care for all cancer patients, addressing any of their questions and concerns while also working with physicians to make the delivery of care more efficient. The Institute also hosts a Patient Navigator Academy, which is available to navigators throughout Carolinas HealthCare System to educate and inform them of the latest treatment options and resources available for patients.
