Abstract

Providing continuing education to nurses in rural communities can be challenging due to limited resources and physical isolation. The purpose of this project was to provide some basic cancer education to nurses in rural Utah and to document the impact and utilization of the information provided. The subjects addressed in this project were (1) cancer process, (2) chemotherapy, (3) radiation therapy, (4) vascular access devices, (5) pain control, and (6) death and dying. The study tested whether continuing education in rural health care agencies (1) enhanced cancer nursing knowledge, (2) changed nursing practice, and (3) produced dissemination of information by nurses to other health care providers.
