Delphi Study on Provider Competencies Seeks Your Input

The CRNG Education Task Force is conducting a Delphi study regarding competencies for providers treating patients with a diagnosis of cancer.  A Delphi study uses a systematic, iterative process to develop a consensus opinion of experts in the field. A high response rate is critical for making this a success. While participation is voluntary, we need and want to include your opinions. We would also appreciate your response to as many questions as possible.  

The ultimate goal of this study is to determine the most important basic competencies that providers should acquire to effectively treat patients with a diagnosis of cancer.  We expect to publish this information and hope that it will set a framework for cancer rehabilitation education across all disciplines.

As a cancer rehabilitation expert, we appreciate your willingness to take the time to contribute to this study. Your responses will be de-identified and confidential, though we will keep track of how many surveys you respond to via your email address during data collection.

Please acknowledge your willingness to participate in this study by CLICKING HERE and responding to the Round 2 questionnaire. One additional Delphi survey will arrive over the next 2-3 months.

If you have any questions or concerns about the study, please email Sara Holz at christensenholz@rehab.wisc.edu

 

CANCER REHABILITATION INITIATIVE: Recommendations From NIH

Functional impairments and disability impact a majority of cancer patients during and after disease treatment. Rehabilitation providers diagnose and treat physical, psychological and cognitive impairments to maintain or restore function, reduce symptom burden, and reduce disability in this medically complex population.

However, rehabilitation services rarely enter comprehensive oncology care. To explore this gap in care, the Rehabilitation Medicine Department of the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) convened an interdisciplinary, expert panel (including 13 ACRM members) to explore the state of practice and research in cancer rehabilitation and to make recommendations to inform a national initiative.
