The training is a certificate program for oncology health care professionals & advocates that addresses the potential financial toxicity of a cancer diagnosis.

As a nurse, this information is not provided in school and it is difficult to navigate day to day. All nurses need this information and if properly informed could grossly improve patient advocacy.”

TRIAGE CANCER PARTNERS WITH AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY TO ADDRESS FINANCIAL TOXICITY IN FREE TRAININGS

LOS ANGELES, CA, September 13, 2018 — Triage Cancer Chief Executive Officer, Joanna Morales, Esq., today announced a partnership with the American Cancer Society to host FREE Insurance & Finance Intensives, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Intensive training is a comprehensive, certificate program for oncology health care professionals and advocates that addresses the potential financial toxicity of a cancer diagnosis.

The trainings are offered in locations across the country and provide attendees with valuable information to improve the ability of individuals diagnosed with cancer to mitigate the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis. Issues addressed include understanding health consumer protections, making choices among individual & employer-sponsored health insurance options, Medicare and Medicaid, tips on effectively using health insurance and the appeals process, navigating disability insurance and appeals, managing finances, and getting financial help.

Triage Cancer recently held a successful Intensive in New Orleans, LA, where more than 50 health care professionals from three states, came to learn how to address financial toxicity.

“Thank you for doing this. As a nurse, this information is not provided in school and it is difficult to navigate day to day. All nurses need this information and if properly informed could grossly improve patient advocacy and knowledge.” – Intensive Attendee, 2018

Upcoming Intensives will be offered in Phoenix, AZ, on November 2, and in Chicago, IL on November 8, 2018. These trainings are free and offer free CEUs to nurses and social workers in attendance. For more information, click here.

These trainings complement a suite of other resources provided by Triage Cancer, to help individuals navigate finances after a cancer diagnosis. For more information, visit https://triagecancer.org.
