Category I: Community Outreach/Prevention

October 2022 Vol 13, No 10 —October 25, 2022

Navigators must have core knowledge of early signs of cancer, screening guidelines, and community and state resources available to support the patient population.

Potential topics in Category I include:

  • Cancer screening
  • Cancer screening follow-up to diagnostic workup
  • Completion of diagnostic workup
  • Disparate populations at screening events
  • Community needs assessment
  • Genetics
  • Risk assessment
  • Population health

This year, there are no accepted abstracts within this research category. We encourage the navigation community to conduct research in this important category of cancer care and submit research abstracts to AONN+ in 2023.
