Cancer Patient Navigation Program Toolkit

As many cancer patients and their families know, navigating the health care system can be difficult and challenging.  In response to that need, the Kansas Cancer Partnership has developed a Patient Navigation Toolkit.  This toolkit will help health professionals provide individualized support, care coordination, and targeted services for those undergoing cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

Kansas developed a Comprehensive Cancer Control and Prevention Plan in March 2005, with the area of patient navigation of particular concern for those individuals and organizations working to implement the Plan.  A dedicated workgroup focused on Patient Navigation and Advocacy helped develop this toolkit. Patient navigation is often an elusive thing and has different meanings for different people.  In the kit, readers will be presented with a definition of patient navigation and the tools and information needed to establish or implement a patient navigation program in their health care establishment.

Copies of the toolkit are available in print by contacting the Kansas Cancer Program, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, 1000 SW Jackson, Suite 230, Topeka, KS 66612 or by calling 785-296-1228.
