Dalton, Lauren, Luxford, Karen, Boyle, Fran, Goldstein, David, Underhill, Craig, & Yates, Patsy (2006) An educational workshop program for rural practitioners to encourage best practice for delivery of systemic adjuvant therapy. Journal of Cancer Education, 21(1), pp. 35-39.
Background. The Rural Systemic Adjuvant Therapy Project was initiated to encourage best practice in the treatment of women from rural areas who have breast cancer. Method. We developed an educational program, piloted it and conducted it in 5 regions. In a preevaluation/postevaluation, we assessed participants' perceived knowledge about systemic adjuvant therapy. Results. A statistically significant increase occurred in participants' reported knowledge about all program topics. Improved communication links with the local or visiting medical oncologist were planned. Conclusion. The workshop program was found to be a successful tool for delivering evidence-based information about the use of systemic adjuvant therapy.
