Miriam Sweet Goldstein is the former Patient Navigation Specialist at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. In that role, she developed a successful program guiding hundreds of breast-cancer patients as they made their way through the healthcare system.
As both a registered nurse and registered psychotherapist, Miriam has the expertise and training needed to assist patients as they navigate treatment options. Through her own breast-cancer diagnosis and recovery, she gained a unique insight that informs her approach in helping others.
Miriam believes that person-centred care is the best—and only—approach. She knows first-hand that many primary practitioners are limited in the time they can take to fully address their patients’ questions and needs. With her professional training, knowledge and personal experience, she helps patients bridge that gap.
