Going beyond data collection—learn how two cancer programs are using their cancer registrars to fill a critical role in each facility’s lung cancer screening program.
Highlights from this Issue:
To fully embrace the concept of patient engagement and be successful at it, learn what areas to explore in a cancer program that provide opportunities for better communication with patients in Improve Patient Engagement, Improve Your Cancer Program.
What Does a Patient Navigator Do? The GW Cancer Institute developed national, consensus-based core competencies for oncology patient navigators and a corresponding online training module to equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform their role effectively and efficiently.
In Patient Navigation Metrics the authors identify metrics to help cancer programs communicate how navigation programs positively impact patients and the healthcare organization as a whole.
