Service Package Examples

Beacon Oncology Nurse Advocates tailors its services according to your specific needs and wants. Comprehensive assessments, consulting on specific areas of concern, and general coordination or case management are some of the ways we help. Beacon's nurse advocates provide individualized and flexible service at any and every point in your cancer treatment journey. To help give you an idea of the ways we have provided care in the past, you can view a collection of historical service packages below.

Example 1: A Comprehensive Assessment

We will provide a comprehensive review of your medical history including: a cancer diagnostic work-up, treatments prescribed and received, medications, pertinent medical issues and opportunities for further discussion with your medical provider. In addition, the nurse advocate will compare all available information to evidence-based, nationally recognized guidelines -- and will advise whether your treatment meets or doesn’t meet the "standard of care." This stage is fluid and dependent on your needs.

Deliverables:

  • The individualized Comprehensive Case Assessment Report will include reported findings and recommendations
  • If requested, your nurse advocate will create your Personalized Treatment Organizer/Planner to help you or your loved one keep track of appointments, medications, test results, bills, telephone numbers, and key information. Or, we will help to facilitate you create your on-line medical record.

Example 2: Specific Concerns/Requests

In the event that you have only a few pointed concerns and requests (see Services Offered page) that do not require a full assessment, then the nurse advocate will focus on the agreed upon goals/objectives

Deliverables:

  • Case Summary Report addresses nurse advocate engagement with stated objectives, all interventions including information reviewed and provided to client, and a summary of outcomes to address whether objectives have been met or not, and possible next steps

Example 3: Concierge Service or "One Point of Contact:"

As your personal case manager, we can coordinate and monitor all aspects of cancer care, transportation, and transitions of care including home care, etc.

Deliverables:

  • A scheduled (weekly, biweekly, or monthly) individualized Concierge Case Report will include reported findings, interventions including information reviewed and provided to client, and a summary of outcomes to address whether stated goal(s) have been met or not, and possible next steps
