Financial Navigation Training
Individuals with cancer routinely face high treatment costs, making financial navigation an essential component of patient navigation. Unfortunately, many health care professionals are not comfortable asking about financial challenges and are not fully aware of resources available to support their patients' care.
To fill this gap, the George Washington University (GW) Cancer Center proudly announces the release of a new training on financial navigation! The training describes current evidence on drivers of financial toxicity, and shares mitigation strategies and resources that equip patient navigators to effectively address financial toxicity. After completing this self-paced free training, learners will be able to:
- Define financial toxicity and its impact on patient wellness
- Describe components of financial navigation
- Identify resources to meet patient financial challenges
- Access sample evaluation tools to show the value of financial navigation in practice
