Patient Navigator Training Collaborative

The purpose of the Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (PNTC) is to provide high-quality training to the navigation workforce. Training topics include health promotion, motivational interviewing, professional boundaries, care coordination, and locating resources.

A patient navigator is a member of the healthcare team who helps patients “navigate” the healthcare system and obtain timely care. Navigators help coordinate patient care, connect patients with resources, and help patients understand the healthcare system. The individuals who do this important work are also called care coordinators, health navigators, and community health workers.

Navigators help foster health equity by reaching underserved populations and helping overcome barriers.
