How the ACS NNRT Functions
The ACS NNRT acts as a catalyst to stimulate work on key issues around patient navigation. The work of the ACS NNRT is guided by an active Steering Committee, with leadership of a Chair and Vice Chair. Through the efforts of task groups, the ACS NNRT advances initiatives that focus on:
- public awareness & communication
- workforce development
A fundamental premise of the ACS NNRT is that collective action among member organizations will be more successful in advancing the field, than if they worked alone. A core principle of the ACS NNRT is that it will not duplicate or take on roles of member organizations; but rather fulfill those roles that would otherwise go undone. The ACS NNRT seeks to enhance organization contributions in navigation through greater engagement with other stakeholders, as well as take on initiatives that all organizations deem worthy, but unlikely to initiate on their own.
Together, members work to share information, identify needs and opportunities, while addressing gaps relating to navigation. The strength of such a partnership, united in mission, enhances the work of each member and thus effectively furthering the field and profession.
