WEBINAR: The Navigator’s Role in Patient-Centered Care

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Roles and Responsibilities of Navigators: A GWCI Case Study

July 24, 2013, Noon ET (FREE!)

The Affordable Care Act and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer Patient- Centered Standards have placed a heavy emphasis on providing patient-centered care to improve health outcomes. Patient navigation is a culturally competent intervention to address barriers to care that has been widely adopted in cancer and chronic disease to reduce health disparities and improve quality of life.

Models of patient navigation vary based on the services being provided, who is providing those services, to whom and at what point(s) during the continuum. This webinar will explore the history and evolution of patient navigation and provide participants with a case study on the navigation model implemented through the George Washington University Cancer Institute. GWCI navigators will discuss their role as part of the care coordination team across the continuum, challenges and successes and program results. Register today!
