Patient navigation programs are intended to overcome obstacles that can prevent individuals from accessing cancer care and to improve coordination of their care. The National Cancer Policy Forum will hold a public workshop on November 13-14, 2017 to examine the optimal conditions and components of successful patient navigation programs in oncology.
The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include:
- Stakeholder perspectives on the role that patient navigation programs play in delivering high-quality cancer care
- Access and utilization patterns of patient navigation programs
- Models of delivery and design features of navigation programs throughout the entire cancer care continuum
- Potential opportunities to improve the implementation and effectiveness of patient navigation programs
