Tata Memorial Centre, in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences and supported by Tata Trusts, is introducing a specialised academic programme in cancer care: KEVAT — An Advanced Diploma in Patient Navigation.
The applications are now open, and the last date is January 31.
The health care system can be fragmented and uncoordinated, and dealing with it can be complex for patients and families. The main role of patient navigators is to guide patients through the health care system, thereby ensuring that they receive timely, effective and efficient care.
They help patients and their families understand diagnoses, treatment options and available resources. By assisting all sections of society, particularly vulnerable populations, to overcome barriers to health care access and bridge gaps in transitions of care, patient navigators can effectively contribute towards an efficient, equitable, and patient-centred health care system.
