When found early enough, colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable. The Montefiore-Einstein Colorectal Health Patient Navigator Program's mission is to significantly impact the prevalence of colorectal cancer in the Bronx community by ensuring that patients in need of a screening colonoscopy are properly assessed and scheduled to receive timely treatment and care.
The Program's staff "navigators" educate patients on what a screening colonoscopy is and how to prepare for it. Additionally, they assist patients in getting scheduled from their primary care physician's office directly to their screening appointment, troubleshooting along the way as necessary.
The Montefiore-Einstein Colorectal Health Patient Navigator Program is currently focused at the Moses campus and is expanding to include the Weiler Campus. North Campus will follow respectively.
