Abstract:
The National Oncology Nursing Society has identified the importance of collaboration between ONS and the Black Nurses Association in an effort to create cervical cancer awareness, prevention, and educational programs. The purpose of this project was to help women take an active role in their health care and learn about cervical cancer prevention. Resources were collected from the Gynecological Cancer Foundation, WomenÆs Cancer Network, the American Cancer Society, and local Cervical Cancer nursing professionals. Seven different presentations were completed by CTC-ONS & BGNAC members in a variety of community settings. At each of these presentations, the nurses delivered the educational materials in a fashion that best suited the needs of the women involved. As a result of these nursing interventions, many women who had not had pelvic exams or pap smears in the past year pledged to make appointments. Approximately 1,000 handouts were distributed at all the presentations. Word was spread by these thousand or more women to other women promoting annual cervical cancer screening to prevent cervical cancer. The nurses involved in the project described a positive experience of educating women at risk and collaborating with colleagues from a diverse professional organization. Oncology nurses could replicate this or similar projects to provide cancer prevention education to at risk communities, and enjoy diverse professionally-rewarding experiences.
