Evaluation of Continuing Education Offerings to Improve the Care of Lung Cancer Patients by Primary Care Providers in Kentucky
January 2016 – May 2018
You are being invited to participate in this educational program regarding improving lung cancer care. There are no known risks for your participation in this program. The information collected may not benefit you directly. The information learned in the evaluation of this program may be helpful to others. The information you provide will assist in improving future educational efforts on lung cancer care. Your deidentified responses to knowledge check questions, along with those of up to 6,800 other providers statewide, will be analyzed and put into a report. The educational program will take approximately one hour to complete. Individuals from the Kentucky Cancer Program, the research team, the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the Human Subjects Protection Program Office (HSPPO), and other regulatory agencies may inspect your answers to questions. In all other respects, however, the data will be held in confidence to the extent permitted by law. Should the data be published, your identity will not be disclosed. Taking part in this educational program is voluntary. By completing this program, you agree to take part in this research study to evaluate the educational program. You may choose not to take part at all. If you decide to be in this study, you may stop taking part at any time by exiting the program or not completing the course. For the webinar, the first one hundred primary care providers, pulmonologists, cardiologists, and lung cancer navigators to register and complete all pre-, post-, and program evaluation questions will receive a $100 electronic gift card, sent to you from the sponsor Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) for your time and inconvenience while you are in this portion of the study. Additionally, all participants of any educational offering may choose to participate in a follow-up evaluation several months after completing the educational program.

You will be paid $100 by an electronic gift card from the sponsor Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) for your time, inconvenience, or expenses while you are in this portion of the study. Because you will be paid to be in this study, the sponsor may collect your name and address, and keep records of how much you are paid. You may or may not be sent a Form 1099 by the sponsor. This will only happen if you are paid $600 or more in one year by the sponsor. We are required by the Internal.
