Title:
Cancer Connections: A Unique Program of Multidisciplinary Cancer Education
Author(s):

Author Details:

Abstract:
Most health care workers, regardless of medical training, interact with patients or family members of patients with cancer at some point in the continuum of care. It is important to offer educational opportunities to address the cancer information needs for a variety of healthcare workers enabling them to be better prepared to serve as a resource to the patient clientele. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center's Allied Health Education Subcommittee created a monthly educational program entitled "Cancer Connections: A Multidisciplinary Update" in an attempt to meet those needs. "Cancer Connections: A Multidisciplinary Update" is a 50-minute panel presentation targeted to allied health professionals. The format consists of three Mayo Clinic professionals representing various disciplines, each speaking for 10 minutes on an identified cancer topic. A fourth speaker who is a patient, spouse, or family member shares their personal experience of how cancer has touched their life. The session concludes with a brief question and answer period. This monthly program is teleconferenced to two Mayo Clinic Rochester locations and seven Mayo Health System sites. Continuing education credits are offered to attendees and each session is videotaped to allow staff to earn contact hours by viewing the tape at a later date. The success of the program is demonstrated in continually high attendance rates and consistently positive evaluations regarding the program content, objectives, and speakers. This poster presentation will identify the following objectives: Identification of program goals and format of monthly presentations, description of the process of working with teleconferencing and continuing education credits for multiple healthcare sites, identification of program outcomes in terms of attendance, use of videotapes, written evaluations, and year-end statistics.
