Mission: The New Mexico Cancer Patient Navigation Network (NMCPNN) seeks to improve cancer outcomes and remove barriers for patients across the cancer care continuum. We strive to bring together different types of navigators from various backgrounds from throughout New Mexico to make a positive difference in the lives of cancer patients. The NMPNCN also seeks to provide opportunities for navigators to network, share resources, educate and create navigation standards in New Mexico in an effort to best assist patients experiencing the burden of cancer.
Goal: Reduce disparities and inequities in access to appropriate and effective cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, care and survivor services. (Goal 8 New Mexico Cancer Plan 2012- 2017)
