    Addressing Barriers to Care: Process and Summative Evaluation of the Competency-Based Oncology Patient Navigator Training

    Presented at the 2017 CDC Cancer Conference on August 14, 2017. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the no-cost, self-paced, online Oncology Patient Navigator Training: The Fundamentals, designed to train patient navigators on addressing barriers to care. The George Washington University Cancer Center analyzed pre- and post- assessment data from 384 learners who completed the training from 2015 to 2016. Most questions were asked on a 5-point Likert scale (Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree). STATA®/IC 14.2  was used to assess changes in confidence across learning objectives (paired t-test) and compare differences in means between patient navigators and licensed health professionals (independent samples t-test).

    Advancing Effective Communication, Cultural Competence, and Patient- and Family-Centered Care

    Every hospital and health care organization is unique. Whether an organization is just beginning to address the needs of LGBT patients and families, or has worked to develop a culture of inclusivity for years, this field guide can be a resource. Just as in the original Roadmap for Hospitals, there is no one approach that works best; The Joint Commission encourages hospitals to adopt a combination of the strategies and practices discussed and to use these examples as a foundation for creating processes, policies, and programs that are sensitive and inclusive of LGBT patients and families. The Joint Commission is not putting forth new requirements, rather we are providing guidance for hospitals and health care organizations and identifying important issues for consideration—many of the recommendations go above and beyond what is required in our accreditation standards.
    This document is intended to complement the many other valuable and influential resources created by other organizations working to improve health systems and care for LGBT communities and families.
