Abstract:
The translation of educational research, similar to clinical research, to impact the daily practice of oncology care is contingent upon a strong method of evaluation in order to best capture the outcomes of the project. This symposium will summarize methologic issues derived from successful conduct of four NCI funded National Cancer Education Programs. These projects were funded by the R25 mechanism of the NCI and included a project focusing on integrating palliative care into routine home care (HOPE Project), a project to disseminate patient and public education in pain management (CPEPP), the End of Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) and Disseminating End of Life Care in Cancer Centers (DELEtCC). Each of these projects extended over four to five years and trained hundreds of nurses and other healthcare professionals to improve critical aspects of cancer care. Using a theoretical perspective derived from adult learning theory, institutional change, quality improvement and diffusion of innovation these projects include extensive evaluation. The methods of evaluation to be discussed include those used pre course, conference evaluation, as well as follow-up longitudinal evaluation. Methods include chart audits, individual assessment of knowledge and beliefs, the effective use of goal based evaluation, interview, and extensive reinforcement strategies. Methods of tracking individual attendees as well as assessment of individual/team/ institutional outcomes will be explored. The critical need for follow-up and methods to enhance compliance with the evaluation plan will be presented with the strategies the investigators have used to achieve greater then 90% compliance at 1 year follow-up of these educational endeavors. Effective evaluation and an intensive plan of evaluation are essential for nurse researchers to conduct education research. Having well defined, consistent measures and evaluation enhance the investigators ability to document the effectiveness of education, either professional or patient focused, and to insure dissemination of findings to impact clinical practice.
