Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (PNTC)

The Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (PNTC) offers a full curriculum for patient navigators, care coordinators, community health workers, and other healthcare professionals working in navigation. There are two course levels with both in-person and online options (3.5 day hybrid or 8 weeks online with live learning sessions). Level 1 courses provide the fundamentals of patient navigation skills. New navigators learn how to address patient barriers, maintain professional relationships, and acquire health promotion skills. Level 2 courses are designed for experienced navigators or those in the health professions, like nurses and social workers. For the more experienced navigators, they focus on topics related to care coordination, emotional aspects of disease, and legal and ethical healthcare issues. The PNTC is funded by the Colorado Health Foundation in partnership with the Center of Public Health Practice, University of Colorado School of Public Health, the Denver Prevention Training Center, and the Denver Health and Hospital Authority. Series and Costs: Level 1: Health Navigation Fundamentals (8 weeks): $550 Level 2: Care Coordination for Navigators (4 weeks): $250 Motivational Interviewing (4 weeks): $150-$250 Total: $950-$1050
