patient advocate (PAY-shunt AD-vuh-kut)

A person who helps a patient work with others who have an effect on the patient’s health,
including doctors, insurance companies, employers, case managers, and lawyers. A patient
advocate helps resolve issues about health care, medical bills, and job discrimination related
to a patient’s medical condition. Cancer advocacy groups try to raise public awareness about
important cancer issues, such as the need for cancer support services, education, and research.
Such groups work to bring about change that will help cancer patients and their families.
