Implementation and evaluation of a Navigation Intervention for People with Cancer in Old Age and their Family Caregivers: an international pragmatic randomized controlled trial

Project description

A closer look at older people with cancer and their families

Delivering high-quality, equitable and cost-effective care to millions of older people with cancer and their frequently overburdened family caregivers is particularly important for healthcare and economy. The EU-funded NAVIGATE project aims to assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of an innovative navigation intervention in more than 530 patients with cancer aged 70 years and older and their family caregivers in different healthcare systems in Europe. The intervention is based on a successfully-tested Canadian volunteer navigation programme that supports people with declining health and their families to improve their quality of life and well-being, foster empowerment, and facilitate timely and equitable access to health and social care services and resources.
