Financial Advocacy Network Case-Based Workshops

The cost of cancer care continues to rise. As a result, cancer programs need increased resources to support the growing number of patients who seek financial assistance for their cancer treatment. The ACCC Financial Advocacy Network (FAN) continues to evolve to help financial advocates meet the needs of patients with cancer and help overcome financial barriers to treatment.

Built upon lessons learned in 2014 and in conjunction with four leading financial advocacy experts —ACCC held dynamic case–based workshops for oncology financial advocates in 2015-2016. These interactive, one-day programs featured facilitated discussion of real–world, case–based scenarios with leading financial advocacy experts, high-level analysis, and collaborative problem solving. Attendees—both beginner and seasoned financial advocates representing a wide range of professionals working in financial advocacy—gained take–home, actionable tools, peer-to-peer information sharing, and effective practices to support patients and advance their financial advocacy programs.

Key topics discussed included: Communicating with the Patient and the Care Team; Maximizing External Assistance; Optimizing Patient Coverage; and Improving Patient Collections.
