IMPLEMENTATION

THE NAV-CARE PROGRAM IS IMPLEMENTED THROUGH COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATIONS WITH TRAINED VOLUNTEERS. 

Step 1

Communities who choose to implement Nav-CARE use the Implementation Manual to work through a series of questions to determine whether Nav-CARE is a good fit with their organization. 


Step 2

If Nav-CARE is a good fit, the organization then contacts the Nav-CARE team to discuss onboarding and sign a memorandum of agreement. 


Step 3

The Nav-CARE team then provides the toolkit including:

Volunteer Coordinator Manual

Facilitators Guide

Learning Manual


Step 4

The organization recruits experienced volunteers and mentors volunteer navigation training. These specially-trained volunteers then work with one or two people with declining health. The volunteer’s goal is to provide long term navigation support and companionship. 


Funding Opportunity

With a contribution from Health Canada, we are inviting hospice palliative care organizations to apply for 2-year funding to implement Nav-CARE in their site and to support implementation in additional hospice palliative care sites. 

The funding call for this year’s cycle closes March 1, 2022.  Next year’s funding cycle will be announced on October 1, 2022.
