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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
