Why hold a national conference for health navigation?
Navigation services have emerged in almost every province and territory across Canada to support individuals and families by helping them find their way through health, education, and social systems.
We recognize the timeliness and importance of navigation services and want to create an opportunity to connect stakeholders in an interdisciplinary setting for information-sharing and networking, with the aim to advance the field of patient navigation across Canada.
This conference will be hosted in partnership between NaviCare/SoinsNavi at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John and the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. To learn more about these centres, click below to visit their web pages.
The Canadian Healthcare Navigation Conference (CHNC) will bring together researchers, decision-makers, administrators, clinicians, trainees, and families with lived experience who are involved with navigation services.
We are happy to announce that our keynote presenters are Harold P Freeman, M.D. (Founder and President of the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute in New York City), and Ms. Keli Anderson (President & CEO of FamilySmart in Vancouver BC).
Attendees will learn about existing models of navigation across Canada; best practices in implementation and evaluation; and ongoing research in the field of navigation.
