Advances in cancer detection and treatment have created a positive impact on overall mortality rates; however, one of the most challenging issues remains—equitable cancer care. Patient navigation is a patient-centered intervention that seeks to close the gap in cancer disparities. Oncology navigation helps patients’ timely access to care from prevention to survivorship and end-of-life care. This course introduces the role of the oncology navigator across different healthcare settings.
