Patient Navigator Course for Laypeople and Clinical Professionals

Komen Columbus is excited to announce we are accepting applications for a free course for community-based or clinical patient navigators interested in increasing their patient needs assessment skills and learning about resources to help support patients through the continuum of care. Though this training focuses on patient navigation after an abnormal screening result, it may be appropriate to build skills for navigation to screening as well.

The deadline to apply is February 11. The course will begin March 1st, and continue for 10 weeks. Twenty-two CNE credits are available through the Oncology Nursing Society.
