Advancing the Field of Cancer Patient Navigation A Toolkit for Comprehensive Cancer Control Professionals

Welcome to Advancing the Field of Cancer Patient Navigation: A Toolkit for Comprehensive Cancer Control Professionals. We developed this toolkit to guide states in advancing patient navigation. Although there are several types of navigators for which the information presented may be relevant, the focus of the toolkit is largely on patient navigators. Throughout this toolkit, we use the term "patient navigators" to specifically refer to navigators who are neither nurses nor social workers who work within the health care system and we use the term "navigators" broadly to encompass patient navigators, social workers and nurse navigators.
