National Cancer Institute: Trainer's Guide for Cancer Education

This trainer's guide is designed for both lay people and health professionals who are conducting group-training sessions with community and scientific audiences. Education is one tool in the fight against cancer. Fully informed health care professionals and consumers can act more effectively to care for their patients, themselves, and their loved ones. It is vitally important that everyone learn how to decrease their risks for getting cancer, the importance of screening and early detection, and ways to access various treatment options. This guide offers practical suggestions for taking knowledge, tailoring it to the specific needs of an audience, and packaging the information in new ways. The guide provides ways to enliven training, encourage more active participation, and enrich the learning experience for everyone involved. The guide is divided into four sections: (1) Adult Learning Principles, (2) Plan, (3) Implement, and (4) Summary and Conclusion.
