What is a patient navigator?
A patient navigator is a member of the healthcare team who helps patients “navigate” the healthcare system and get timely care. Navigators help coordinate patient care, connect patients with resources, and help patients understand the healthcare system. Patient navigators work in many areas of healthcare. Many have one chronic disease focus area such as cancer, heart disease, or diabetes.
Who are courses for?
Courses are for patient navigators, care coordinators, community healthcare workers, and other healthcare professionals working in navigation. Choose from two levels of training: Level 1 for new patient navigators and Level 2 for more experienced navigators. New navigators learn strategies to address patient barriers, how to maintain professional relationships, and health promotion skills. More experienced navigators can focus on topics related to care coordination, emotional aspects of disease, or legal and ethical healthcare issues. See the Courses page for more information.
