Patient Navigation is a novel concept in Oncology and in Healthcare. There are many research papers and publications that recognize the need and merit of the role of patient navigators co-existing in a system functioning with social workers and psychologists. While a social worker may be expected to learn about the medical aspects while on job, TMC through this course plans on integrating this learning in the course. Hands-on learning will form an essential part of skill development.
This course can induct graduates/post-graduates and equip them with necessary wherewithal (clinical and psycho-social aspects) to work in an oncology set-up.
Career growth and opportunitiesThere is a pressing need for well-trained patient navigators in onco-care. More so, being a nascent area of speciality in cancer care, the scope of growth and development of navigators in all public and private institutions holds immense potential.
New centres are being created across the country to tackle the quantum of increasing burden of cancer. Tata Memorial Centre is also expanding and prototypes are planned on the lines of hub and spoke models at Vizag, Sangrur, Chandigarh, Varanasi and Guwahati
New opportunities for growth of patient navigators within the existing and expanding TMC network are also envisaged. Avenues for growth shall also be presented to the patient navigators within the National Cancer Grid network for maintaining the uniformity of standards of patient care throughout the country. Tata Trusts also plans on developing new cancer centres in the North-East. Patient navigators would play a vital role in managing patient support in these centres right from its inception.
