Evaluation of Palliative Care Education Programs in Northern Ontario
S. Caty*, M.E. Hill, J.B. Minore, and R.W. Pong
The Ministry of Health commissioned the Northern Health Human Resources Research Unit (NHHRRU) to conduct an in-depth evaluation of palliative care education programs that were to be delivered in Northern Ontario during 1994-95. The evaluation focussed on the "Train the Trainer" educational model employed in the initiatives, by profiling the educational programs, documenting the educational experience of the participants, and examining the effects of the programs on the participants' knowledge and attitudes toward palliative care. Six of the thirteen palliative care education programs, including physician-specific and interdisciplinary programs, were evaluated.
