Video Teaches Doctors to Reach Across Cultural Boundaries to Talk about Cancer

Raising provider awareness of cultural barriers in cancer prevention

During 2000 and 2001, staff from Harvard University School of Public Health and its Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention produced an educational videotape designed to help health care providers improve the quality of care they provide to patients from different cultural backgrounds.

Key Results

  • Produced in 2001 by the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention, the 70-minute videotape — "Community Voices: Exploring Cross-Cultural Care Through Cancer" — integrates academic research and community perspectives, a 34-page facilitator's guide organized around the key areas and an evaluation form for users.

Funding

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported this project through a grant of $43,480.
