NPAF is pleased to announce new additions to accompany and enhance users’ experience to the Advocacy Curriculum. These new materials, developed through support from Pfizer’s “This is Living with Cancer” program, provide tips and summaries to reinforce users’ training as they begin to advocate for themselves and on behalf of others. The resources correspond with the nine foundational modules of the Advocacy Curriculum:

· Introduction to Patient Advocacy

· Principles and Ethics of Patient Advocacy

· Storytelling I

· Media for Advocacy

· Storytelling II

· Health Equity and Utilizing the National Financial Resource Directory

· Co-Creating Programs, Part I

· Co-Creating Programs, a Case Study with Sisters Working it Out

· Co-Creating Programs, Part II

“Users have made the Advocacy Curriculum NPAF’s most popular resource, underscoring the high demand for this type of training,” said Jamie Trotter, Associate Director for Patient Advocacy and Engagement. “Our goal is to provide these tools to improve health literacy and enhance users skills and capacity for self-advocacy.”

Each document was co-developed with the modules’ lead instructor, summarizing the course and providing insights. Users can access these new materials now through their Talent LMS course files. Each is available in pdf form, which users can download and print for easy reference. For more information, please visit https://www.npaf.org/advocacy-curriculum/
