Patient Navigation Services Increase Cancer Screening and Advance Health Equity

CPSTF Recommends Patient Navigation Services to Increase Cancer Screening and Advance Health Equity

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends patient navigation services to increase breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings among historically disadvantaged racial and ethnic populations and people with lower incomes. The recommendation is based on a systematic review of 34 studies. 

Patient navigation services are expected to advance health equity when implemented among these populations who often have lower screening rates.1 With timely and appropriate follow-up care and treatment, patient navigation services may improve health for these groups.   

The recommendations for patient navigation services complement CPSTF’s recommendations for interventions engaging community health workers and multicomponent interventions to increase breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings.
