CANCER TRAINING AND EDUCATION

CANCER CONTROL 2015 75

sections, with supporting written

slides that reinforce the key

educational points. Due to limited

bandwidth availability across Africa,

a text-only version of the course was

also developed with the same

materials presented without the

need for videos. The content was

created to highlight clinical best

practice with a key focus on

developing long-term improvement

in behaviours and each module

followed the same format, with an

introduction involving educational

aims and objectives as well as a premodule

quiz to identify existing

knowledge. The educational content

of the module was then presented

with interactive elements and

continuous evaluation to help ensure

key elements are fully understood by

the learners. The key educational

points of each module were then

reinforced at the end of the module

and learners complete the postmodule

quiz to demonstrate

knowledge gain. The conclusion

contains extra resources, an

opportunity for feedback as well as

an opportunity to reflect on what

they had learnt and make a pledge on

how they were going to implement

what they had learnt and what changes they were going to

make to their clinical behaviours when they saw patients in

the future.

Filming of the educational content took place at multiple

locations across the United Kingdom and Africa over several

months and involved producing footage of 41 leading

experts in the various different elements of palliative care

and patients who were happy to share their experiences.

Testing and peer-review

The first drafts of the modules were produced for testing at

the APCA 2013 Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa.

During the testing period 32 African health-care

professionals with varying levels of knowledge of palliative

care were invited to test the modules, their feedback was

collected, analysed and guided the creation of additional

resources which were produced in collaboration with

leading experts who were attending the conference. These

additional materials were then incorporated into the

modules which were peer-reviewed in collaboration with

the VUCCnet Focal Points as well as contacts provided by

APCA.

Launch and dissemination activity

The modules were launched at the AORTIC conference in

Durban, South Africa in November 2013 with a poster

presentation, distribution of promotional materials, inserts

in the delegate's bags and a presentation to the VUCCnet

stakeholders.

Additional promotion took place in association with

APCA, AORTIC and hospice organizations across Africa. This

included promotion of the modules through the

e-newsletters and on the websites of organizations

including:
