The Executive Training on Navigation and Survivorship is an innovative program that teaches the nuts and bolts of navigation and survivorship program development and implementation. The program walks participants through brief interactive presentations, supplemental written content that summarizes the latest research and best practices, case studies and customizable activities to create a program plan. Continuing Education credits are available for nurses and social workers. To register for the program, visit the GW Cancer Institute's Online Academy available at http://gwcehp.learnercommunity.com/cancer-institute and use enrollment code ETrain (note, this is case sensitive).
A Guide for Program Development and accompanying Program Development Workbook were developed to efficiently and effectively walk learners through the process of program planning. It includes background information, tools and resources along with short activities to help with program design, implementation, evaluation and sustainability. Each activity is fully customizable, so when learners have completed each of them, they will have a tailored plan for their program. It is intended to provide an overview of important content for building and sustaining navigation and survivorship programs and provides tips and tools gathered over several years.
Cancer centers are trying to meet new patient demands and accreditation requirements to provide patient navigation services and cancer survivorship care. This training helps program leaders think through their program assessment, implementation, evaluation and sustainability through activities, tips and resources.
