Empathic Communication Skills Training to Reduce Lung Cancer Stigma

Grants and Contracts Details


The purpose of this study is to find out if a new training program for cancer care providers called Empathic Communication Training (ECT) will be effective in helping care providers develop or increase the skills needed to provide care that limits lung cancer stigma. The site research staff will screen and identify eligible OCPs at their sites and inform their research colleagues at the Go2 Foundation for Lung Cancer and ACS who will then send an email to the OCPs describing the study and inviting participation. OCPs will be asked to reply to this email if they are interested in participating. The research staff at Go2 and ACS will communicate back to the site staff who is interested in order that the site staff can have follow-up phone/email discussions with the OCPs that will encompass a thorough description of the study procedures, OCP involvement, and getting a verbal informed consent from interested OCP participants.
