Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Life never feels more valuable and finite than after diagnosis. We believe that those diagnosed with cancer should spend their time and energy how they choose, free from the stress and worry about what information they need and where to find it. It is our belief that everyone should have access to the resources they need to manage their life beyond diagnosis regardless of their type of cancer, where they live or their financial situation. Those diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers are too often underserved when it comes to information they need to live their best life, beyond diagnosis. We see a different world….. We dream of a world where everyone has access to information and resources needed to live their best lives. Beyond diagnosis.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We are all too aware how cancer changes how those diagnosed approach everything in their lives - their finances, their job, their relationships, their future. In an instant it can feel like control is lost. In an instant a diagnosis can change everything. Plans previously made are no longer guaranteed. Never has every moment felt so important. There are new questions, new needs, new challenges. It can be daunting, tiring and frustrating for those diagnosed and those that care for them. We believe everyone should be free to focus their time and energy on what’s important to them, secure in the knowledge that they have objective, accurate information and necessary resources to make the right decisions, for them, their families and their future. We’re here to educate and empower those diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers as they focus on living their best lives beyond diagnosis. Because for as long as there are questions, we’ll have answers.

Triage Cancer provides information to patients, caregivers, health care professionals, and advocates on practical and legal issues that may impact individuals diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers, through: - Hosting of educational events on cancer survivorship topics; - Offering a speakers bureau of experts in various areas of cancer survivorship, as well as cancer survivors who can share their story; and - Providing educational materials and resources.

Triage Cancer has a hard--working group of staff, board members, advisory council members, and other volunteers that allow us to effectively deliver our programs. We have more than 60 members of our speakers bureau who are available to deliver programs around the country. We also work with cancer community partners, healthcare professionals, and experts in the areas of medicine, nursing, social work, navigation, nutrition, oncofertility, law, employment, education, finances, insurance, relationships, sexuality and intimacy, pain and palliative care, advocacy, and other areas of cancer survivorship.

We evaluate each of our educational programs through various program evaluation models. In addition, the success of the our speakers bureau is evidenced by the feedback from the event hosts that use our speakers bureau, as well as the repeat customers. We also track the analytics on the use of our educational materials, website, and educational blog.

From 2012-2018, Triage Cancer provided more than 246,000 people with cancer survivorship education through more than 659 online and in-person educational events held in 48 states, DC, and Guam. Additionally, each year, more than 200,000 people are reached through our educational materials, TriageCancer.org, CancerFinances.org, our educational blog, and monthly e-newsletters, which are disseminated to more than 25,000 individuals. Triage Cancer hosts educational events in a variety of formats and locations to try to reach as many people as possible with critical information about cancer survivorship. We also provide attendees with valuable materials and resources to receive ongoing navigation and support. Our educational programs receive overwhelmingly positive feedback, with evaluation comments that include: “I can’t believe I was allowed to do my job as a nurse navigator without this information!” “I would like to thank you so much for the very pleasant and informative conference. I am a 6 year cancer free survivor and I so wish that I had this information available to me when I was going through my cancer treatment. I came here today to try to get any resources I could pass on to others in order to help them through their cancer in any way I can. Please don't stop doing what you are doing. You are so appreciated.” “Excellent presentations! All speakers were very educated and well versed in their topic. Great speakers! Well-paced! Great Facility! Bravo! Thanks! I feel confident sharing the link to Triage Cancer with my patients for excellent tools to help navigate some of their very big concerns as we develop their plan for care & coverage.” “I didn’t know what to expect at this conference, but this has been the best one I have attended since becoming an oncology nurse. Thank you ladies for all you have done, all that you do, and all that you will continue to do. Very empowering and informative.”
