Bladder Cancer Advanced Practice Providers
At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, physician assistants and nurse practitioners (collectively referred to as advanced practice providers, or APPs) work in nearly every specialty including oncology, hematology, surgery, pain service, survivorship, palliative care, and stem cell transplant.
As a part of the bladder cancer care team, APPs work collaboratively with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers, participating in all aspects of care.

Sarah Hunt is the a bladder oncology nurse practitioner. "Patients and families deserve to feel cared for, educated about their disease and treatment options, and to feel like they are getting the best evidenced-based and investigational research options that are available."
