Abstract:
Getting Connected: African Americans Living Beyond Breast Cancer is a consumer-focused, culturally relevant, educational book designed to meet the needs of breast cancer survivors, their support network, and health professionals who educate and counsel African American women at risk for or diagnosed with breast cancer. The book's purpose is to promote informed decision-making while providing support, encouragement, and inspiration to African American women as they go through diagnosis, treatment, and begin living beyond breast cancer. A consumer-based, qualitative process was used to create the book. A community advisory committee gave input in the design; educational needs assessment, recruitment of focus group participants, and implementation of the project. The central theme identified from content analysis of the focus group data was getting connected. Five areas of connection were identified: Self, God/nature, family/friends, other survivors, and one's healthcare team. The process of connection: Surviving, choosing, relating, and living became the four chapters of the book. This presentation will describe the consumer-based qualitative process used to create the book, the focus group findings, and the educational workshop for health providers that has been developed and implemented. The workshop includes an educator's guide to using the book as a tool for connecting to African American women in various healthcare settings.
