Training Overview Description

This is a 16-hour, distance based training intended for individuals who are interested in becoming Family Navigators or adding navigation to their work.

Navigators are trained providers who work with clients/patients and their families specifically for the purpose of connecting them to resources and reducing barriers to quality care. Navigators help people "navigate" through the maze of doctors' offices, clinics, hospitals, outpatient centers, insurance and payment systems, support organizations, and other components of the health care system.

Health care has become increasingly complex involving multiple specialists, insurance providers, and care providers. Often clients/patients do not know what they need to do or why. This results in missed appointments, poor treatment outcomes, and increased expense. Learning how to work effectively with clients/patients to address these issues and facilitate support improves outcomes and saves time and resources.
