Melanoma Clinical Trial
Enhancing Skin Cancer Early Detection and Treatment in Primary Care
Skin cancer screening may help find melanoma sooner, when it may be easier to treat. If found early melanoma and other types of skin cancer may be curable. Multi-component education may be an effective method to help primary care physicians (PCPs) learn about skin cancer screening. This clinical trial examines whether a clinician-focused educational intervention can improve PCP's knowledge and clinical performance to identify and triage skin cancer. This intervention may increase the PCP's ability to diagnose, treat and/or triage early-stage melanoma.
I. Evaluate whether a multi-component education strategy improves the ability of PCPs to identify and triage skin cancer.
Participants are assigned to 1 of 2 groups.
PCP participants complete group training and online training sessions. All training participants will also be offered series of short booster teaching points delivered virtually. Participants who complete the training also take part in pre-post knowledge assessments. PCP participants may also participate in a qualitative interview.
PCPs at the two clinics who are in pods that are not assigned to receive the intervention will serve as study comparators. Comparison group has no direct exposure to the group or online training sessions.
Two Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) primary care pods at two clinics will be assigned to receive exposure to the melanoma early detection intervention
Clinicians at the two clinics who are in pods that are not assigned to receive the intervention will serve as study comparators
These individuals are all aged 18 years or older
All practice members speak English
No one will be intentionally excluded
