Harlem, NY, October 18, 2010 — The Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute is accepting applications for its new online educational program designed to provide convenient, self-paced instruction to those interested in learning and deploying its signature patient navigation model. The concept of patient navigation was founded and pioneered by Harold P. Freeman in 1990 for the purpose of eliminating barriers to timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. It has since expanded to include the timely movement of an individual across the entire health care continuum from prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive and end-of-life care for cancer, in addition to other chronic diseases. The HP Freeman Patient Navigation Model has become the gold standard for employers of patient navigators.
