Navigator-specific Interventions and Multidisciplinary Care Team Collaboration Improves Care and Outcomes for Patients with GI CancersApril 25, 2016
The GI ONN is a relatively new position whose role is not only to remove barriers to care, but also to facilitate timely, comprehensive, and evidence-based care for patients with GI cancers.
A navigation process that effectively addresses a community's health care disparities and barriers to cancer care is driven by a triennial Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
Oncology rehabilitation is cost-effective; it lowers both direct and indirect health care costs and improves physical and psychological quality of life for patients with cancer.
A working knowledge of frailty, multimorbidity, and geriatric syndromes, as well as self-awareness of and sensitivity to ageism are key skills for oncology navigators caring for older patients.
Navigators need to be aware of the signs and symptoms of cognitive and emotional distress and be able to determine which patients and family members need to be managed more closely.
Patient navigation ensures patients with cancer achieve diagnostic resolution in a timely manner, leading to optimal outcomes for both patients and the community.
Side effects are defined as long-term or late. Although the 2 types are difficult to distinguish, their distinction is both clear and important.
