|2014 National Community Health Worker Advocacy Survey Reports||
The 2014 National Community Health Worker Advocacy Survey (NCHWAS) is the largest on-line survey of Community Health Workers (CHW) conducted to date. NCHWAS represents the voices of approximately 1,767 CHWs from 45 United States and 4 US territories. Data gathered through NCHWAS is intended to be ‘open source’ and used for CHW workforce development and sustainability. The NCHWAS aims to describe (1) the state of CHWs as a professional field and (2) the impact of CHW community advocacy on community engagement to address health disparities. Although Community Health Workers or CHWs go by a variety of titles including, Promotora de Salud, Community Health Representatives, Community Health Aides, Peer Educators, and Patient Navigators to name just a few, we use the term Community Health Worker or CHWs as the umbrella term to describe the workforce.

The report assigns grades based on laws and regulations designed to prevent and reduce tobacco use in effect as of January 2017.

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

The need for patient navigation arose from the understanding that some cancer patients have challenges accessing care. These challenges are often the result of social determinants of health and health disparities. This toolkit was developed to guide states in advancing patient navigation. This resource can be used to:
