Tata Memorial Centre in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences and supported by Tata Trusts, brings forth a specialized academic program in cancer-care:
KEVAT- An Advanced Diploma in Patient Navigation
The Need- Health care system can be fragmented, uncoordinated, and 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, overcome barriers to health care access and bridge gaps in transitions of care, patient navigators can effectively contribute towards an efficient, equitable, and patient-centered health care system.
This course is one of the first in India to focus on an emerging patient navigation model that can be applied across all cancer care institutions.
