The following lists my accreditation.
George Washington Cancer Center Online Academy Training
I have earned five certificates of course completion from George Washington University Cancer Center.
These training modules are meant for health care and public health professionals to:
- Understand the fundamentals of an oncology patient navigator position
- Be versed in effective communications including media planning, media relations and the importance of an evidence-based campaign
- Incorporate an understanding attitude in the subject of cancer survivorship
GW Cancer Center developed the first-ever competencies for non-clinically licensed Oncology Patient Navigators. In 2015 they launched competency-based training through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
These courses include the foundational knowledge that oncology patient navigators need.
