Abstract:
Education: Overall survival rates for patients less than 15 years of age diagnosed By creating this new type of educational tool, the hope of all who contributed to this project is to make available to a broad audience of providers information about state of the art care for AYAs with ALL, in order to provide these patients optimal chance of survival. If evaluation of this tool shows that it is efficient and effective, the educational format of webcasting may be increasingly utilized in the future. with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are currently greater than 80%. This number drops approximately by half in adolescents and young adults (AYAs). Recently, clinical research has shown that AYAs with ALL who are treated on pediatric clinical trials have improved outcomes compared to AYAs treated on clinical trials for adults. In response to this, the clinical trial CALGB 10403 was developed in which AYAs with newly diagnosed ALL are treated at adult institutions on a pediatric-based ALL regimen. Most adult health care providers (AHCPs) are less familiar with pediatric ALL therapy. This session will describe a unique process of educating AHCPs about a new clinical trial available for AYA patients with ALL. An educational module in webcast form was developed for AHCPs by members of the Children's Oncology Group Nursing Discipline, given their familiarity with pediatric clinical trials, which provided the framework for this protocol. There was contribution from 3 major adult oncology cooperative groups, as well. This easily accessible webcast (a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover) discusses background information for the clinical trial, chemotherapy regimens, side effects and symptom management, and late adverse risks. It will be available through the internet to adult institutions with this clinical trial open and is designed for all providers caring for these patients: physicians, nurses, pharmacists and research assistants. The educational module in webcast form will be available as of January, 2009. An evaluation form is linked to the webcast to assess the effectiveness of this type of educational tool.
