Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This abstract discusses the design and results of an interprofessional education (IPE) program for community members, caregivers, and healthcare providers (HCP). Education focused on fall prevention, home modifications, and the role of rehabilitation in geriatric oncology. Knowledge change was assessed by pre-post surveys. Results show significant improvement on knowledge change and intended behavior for all three audiences. Continued training efforts are necessary for broader dissemination.
