Map and Directions


The George Washington University Cancer Institute will host an interactive two-day training that equips health care professionals with the tools needed to launch and sustain navigation and survivorship programs, two cornerstones of patient-centered care. Participants learn strategic planning techniques for developing, implementing, evaluating and sustaining patient navigation and survivorship programs. Participants will receive a comprehensive Guide for Program Development constructed by the GWCI Division of Cancer Survivorship staff that includes tools, resources and information on navigation and survivorship programs. Participants will also receive an accompanying Program Development Workbook to work on building their program plan throughout the training. At the conclusion of the training, participants walk away with a cohesive institution-specific plan for either a survivorship or patient navigation program that will enhance the patient focus of their organization.
