Description:
Patient navigation had its inception in Harlem in 1990 as an intervention designed to diminish the exceedingly high breast cancer mortality rate in a population of poor African American women. The combined interventions of breast cancer screening and navigation from the point of abnormal finding to timely treatment increased the five-year survival rate from 39% to 70%.
