Clinical Pathway

What is a clinical pathway?
Your clinical pathway is a way for us to ensure that we keep track of how you are doing during and after your cancer treatments.
Who is involved?
Your team of head and neck surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, speech pathologists, registered dietitian, social workers and nurse specialist each have a role in the clinical pathway. You will see one, more or all of these professionals at various times as noted in the clinical pathway schedule. 
Why do I need a clinical pathway? 
National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) provides guidelines for when you should be seen by your doctor and other professionals so you can have the best quality care (www.nccn.org). Your clinical pathway follows these guidelines. 
The goals are surveillance for recurrent or new tumors, monitor quality of life and function. 
When will I be scheduled for my clinical pathway appointments?
Before, during and after treatment.
After treatment… You will receive a call from our front desk staff to schedule your clinical pathway appointments.
