Applications open for CCRI Cancer Patient Navigation Training Programme

The Caribbean Cancer Research Initiative (CCRI) is inviting applicants for its 3rd annual Cancer
Patient Navigation Training Programme which will be held virtually.

This training programme was developed by a multi-disciplinary team of experts that considered the unique challenges to cancer management for patients in the Caribbean region. The CCRI aims to build local and regional capacity in patient navigation through this training programme.

Patient navigation is a patient-centered healthcare model that focuses on eliminating barriers to timely diagnosis and management of chronic diseases such as cancer. Patient navigation is
successful because it: 1) facilitates the timely movement of patients through complex healthcare continuums, and 2) provides needed emotional and practical support to patients and their family.
This function is most effectively carried out through a one-on-one relationship between the patient navigator and the patient.

Persons who complete the training successfully will be able to support friends, family and other patients as a patient navigator. Persons will also be eligible to be hired by CCRI as a cancer patient navigator.

Programme information:

The application deadline is October 6th, 2021 at 11:59 pm.

The programme will commence on November 1st, 2021, and end on November 15th, 2021. All lectures will be pre-recorded and administered online.
