Focus on Nursing Care Coordinators (NCCs) Serving as the link between patient, hospital and health-care teams, NCCs are the nur- ses who coordinate personalised patient care. Mediators par excellence, NCCs are the principal contacts for patients throughout the course of treatment, including the critical time when diagnosis is communicated. Trained coaches specialised in the different types of cancer, NCCs not only plan patient care, but also ensure that patients are able to fol- low their treatment plans with ease.
