 Patient and Family Resources


The purpose of this project was to increase knowledge of cancer educators across Iowa regarding availability of and access to programs and resources to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors and their families.
Cancer educators from across the state were invited to attend a pre-summit Cancer Education Workshop. Over 79 cancer educators (social workers, navigators, care coordinators, patient educators, and individuals from organizations that provide support to cancer patients) attended.
Attendees were sought out by posting the conference invitation on several listservs focused on cancer educators, inclusion in the monthly Iowa Cancer Consortium newsletter, and dissemination of the invitation by personal emails.
