Advocacy Community Education & Awareness Screening & Early Detection Patient Navigation & Access to Treatment 2 The greatest need we have today in the human cancer problem, except for a universal
cure, is a method of detecting the presence of cancer before there are any clinical signs of symptoms. Sidney Farber, letter to Etta Rosensohn, November 1962 (The Emperor of All Maladies, Siddhartha Mukherjee) Early Detection Cancer screening for early diagnoses Before the signs and symptoms To reduce disease and death from the disease Two Types:
4 Population-based screening: offered systematically to all individuals in the defined target group within a framework of agreed policy, protocols, quality management, monitoring and evaluation Opportunistic screening: offered to an individual without symptoms of the disease when they present to a health care practitioner for reasons unrelated Ideal Situations to

Suspicious Cells = Diagnosis, Treatment Plan, Navigation = Follow Up, Blood Transfusion, Nutrition, Accommodation, Bookings, Systemic Issues = Negotiation, Communication Media Engagement Goals of our Patient Navigation We aim: To eliminate barriers to care: Patient navigation makes sure patients are aware of and can access available services and are not lost to follow-up.
To ensure timely delivery of services: Patient navigation works to move patients through the health care system in a timely manner from the point of a suspicious finding to the resolution of that finding. To save lives from cancer: Patient navigation ensures that a patient with a suspicious finding finds resolution through more timely diagnosis and treatment. It is during this critical window of opportunity that lives can be saved. Patient Navigation
Ideally a patient navigator Is a compassionate, effective guide in bridging the gaps to help patients, their caregivers, and their families Ensures patients do not fall through the cracks as a result of fragmentation between health care providers, hospital centers, and community-based services.
Challenges Volunteers Emotional bonding with patients No formal training in patient navigation Financial constraints Cycle of fundraising Cancer doesnt wait We have learnt to recognize that we can only
give what we have, so we give from the heart Prevention & Early Detection Organising a screening programme is complex. Effects only visible after a long period. Between the Screening, precancer diagnosis, and diagnosis, we have a great opportunity to save lives from cancer by taking steps to navigate the system for ease of access Patient Navigation bridges the
gap. Illustration: Guy Billout References 1. Battaglia, T.A., Freund, K. M., Calhoun, E., Dudley, D. J., Fiscella, K., Paskett, E., Raich, P. C., Roetzheim, R.
