Novel educational interventions for community oncologists and patients To optimize renal cell carcinoma outcomes

Organization:
Duke University

The overall aim is to develop novel, proven methods to improve knowledge, competence, and performance in the care of the RCC patient while also demonstrating how to better involve patients in their own care.

Objectives for this proposal directly align with what is needed for the RCC community:

  • Develop a unified system with which to provide novel educational tools to both clinicians and patients, designed using well established PRECEDE-­‐PROCEED framework of health education program planning.
  • Demonstrate the impact of this system on outcomes for both providers and patients through improved patient level outcomes using predefined endpoints such as total time on therapy and quality of life (QOL) as tested across community practice networks.
  • Assess provider level outcomes for improvement in individual healthcare provider (HCP) knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors.
