Intervention Components (click on component to see a list of all articles that use that intervention): PATIENT/CONSUMER, Patient Navigation

Intervention Results:

Existing studies examining the efficacy of patient navigation interventions show particularly striking benefits in the realm of cancer care, including gynecological oncology; patient navigation has been demonstrated to increase access to screening, shorten time to diagnostic resolution, and improve cancer outcomes, particularly in health disparity populations. Because of the successes in cancer care at reducing disparities in health care access and health outcomes, patient navigation has the potential to improve care and reduce disparities in obstetric and benign gynecological care.
