GW Cancer Center Releases New Resource on Patient Navigation

GW Cancer Center Releases New Resource on Patient Navigation

The GW Cancer Center is pleased to announce the release of Implementing the Commission on Cancer Standard 3.1: Patient Navigation Process: A Road Map for Comprehensive Cancer Control Professionals and Cancer Program Administrators. This CDC-funded resource was developed in response to technical assistance requests by comprehensive cancer control stakeholders to help build capacity to meet the Commission on Cancer (CoC) standard for developing a patient navigation process.

Comprehensive cancer care professionals can use this road map to:

  • Identify CoC cancer programs in your region and disseminate this resource
  • Provide technical assistance and training in public health strategy development, research and evaluation
  • Connect CoC cancer programs with data sources

Cancer program administrators can use this road map to:

  • Conduct a cancer-specific community needs assessment
  • Identify barriers to care and determine potential solutions to reduce cancer disparities
  • Establish a patient navigation process and identify resources available to assist patients in need
  • Modify or enhance the patient navigation process
  • Work with comprehensive cancer control partners to address identified gaps in resources
