dc.description.abstractIntroduction Cancer is a complex, multifaceted condition requiring multimodal treatments over prolonged periods of time, in a variety of settings, delivered by multiple health professionals. Patients have reported confusion and fragmentation with their care and in many centres, cancer care coordinators (CCCs) have been employed to solve this problem. Method A convenience sample of CCCs were observed over a period of one week to understand and interpret how they apply their role in the clinical setting to meet the needs of their patients and clients. Results Three key prominent themes were observed in the role of the CCC: general assessment; psychological support; and educational support. Coordination of care and of the multidisciplinary team was not observed as a prominent role in the sample observed. Conclusion CCCs assess, educate and support the patient and their family during treatment with an aim of holistic care.en_US
