If you are*:
- a new patient to a cancer care program
- a cancer patient who has been prescribed a “take at home” drug treatment
- a cancer patient who has been prescribed a new cancer drug treatment not yet covered by the hospital or most drug plans
- a cancer patient who has concerns about their drug coverage or affordability
You will be referred to an oncology drug access navigator by your oncology/nurse team. In some cancer centres in Atlantic Canada, referral is automatic.
If you are not referred, you can ask for a referral at any point during your care.
