Abstract:
A Collaborative Effort to Teach Early Cancer Detection to Adolescents
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001

Author:Hutson-Moore, Tracy
The purpose of this poster presentation is to illustrate the ongoing research and health promotion-teaching project between the faculty and adult nurse practitioner students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the Greensboro Chapter of the Women’s Zionist Organization “Hadassah”. Through a collaborative agreement, the faculty and graduate students at the School of Nursing and the women of the Greensboro Chapter of Hadassah have realized mutual achievement of both groups’ goals. The goal of the women of Hadassah is to implement an early cancer detection-teaching program in the schools of Guilford County, North Carolina. The goals of faculty and students at the School of Nursing are to contribute to the body of knowledge related to teaching early cancer detection to adolescents and to actively involve faculty and students in a leadership role with community public service agencies. The partnership has utilized the strength of both groups to effectively achieve the introduction of the educational sessions at several schools. A pilot study was completed to validate an instrument used to assess the effectiveness of the teaching. Several other studies are in progress to evaluate the need for and effectiveness of the programs.
