Older people with cancer - Call for information on existing navigation systems


AGE Platform Europe is a partner to the EU NAVIGATE project which aims to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a Navigation Intervention (NavCare-EU) for older people with cancer and their family caregivers in different health care systems in Europe based on the existing and successfully tested Nav-Care intervention from Canada.

Mapping cancer patient navigation systems – leveraging the existing to inform the future

The project is now mapping existing navigation for cancer patients across the EU and beyond. The aim is to broaden the scope of the project to all existing navigation services and the potential and need for navigation by people with cancer of all age groups and their families in the whole of Europe and beyond. Critically, this landmark mapping exercise will inform the project’s recommendations on wider implementation of cancer patient navigation in national health systems moving forward.
