Closing the Chasm Between Native Community Priorities in Cancer Prevention and Healthcare Research Priorities
Cancer touches all of our lives. For many Native communities, fears of cancer risk from environmental sources beyond their control are common. Some researchers, usually unaware of Native community concerns, can harbor the perspective that Native communities could be fruitful populations for studying the genetic risks of cancer. This webinar will help both sides of this chasm understand the other's point of view, hopefully leading to more effective communications and priority setting.
These courses are intended for medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, physician assistants, radiologic technologists, researchers, pharmacists, trainees, allied health personnel, and others who are interested in care for patients and survivors in North Carolina.
- Identify the common reasons that Native communities might fear environmental risk factors for cancer.
- Describe the perspective of cancer researchers, who often have not partnered with Native communities, on why they perceive Native Americans as a desirable population to study potential genetic risk factors for cancer.
- Identify the problematic nature of conflicting priorities to investigate possible cancer causes.
- Discuss finding common ground by acknowledging that Native communities and cancer researchers have valid points that might not be well known by the other group.
