About this study
Plan to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine the feasibility, benefits and educational impact of using simulation for patient education (SimEd) for post-mastectomy wound and drain care, compared to current patient education practice (StdEd). This study also seeks to derive and validate a skills assessment tool specifically developed to evaluate skills acquired during the education process and compare the results of SimEd vs StdEd; we also plan to relate the scores of our assessment tool to a validated instrument that measures readiness for patient dismissal and compare their results in both study arms.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Adult post breast or axillary surgery patients with 2 or more JP drains in situ
- Adult primary wound and drain care provider, if different from the patient
