Danielle Carnival believes that providing patients with the most up-to-date tools and resources about clinical trials is an essential part of doubling the rate of progress in the fight against cancer, and the Biden Cancer Initiative is focused on reaching a wide range of patients with this information.
Danielle Carnival discusses the Biden Cancer Initiative's plan for building a "Patient Roadmap," which would serve as a comprehensive, vetted list of resources for cancer patients and/or oncology navigators.
Lillie praises the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) for its wealth of information from a variety of experts in the field. The publication provides all-encompassing information for navigators and is one of the only publications that talks about survivorship.
Beginning a navigation program can be intimidating and there is not one program that fits every institution. Lillie recommends visiting other institutions that have established programs as a starting point.
