Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study was to assess the educational preparation of health care providers in Illinois in recognizing and treating oral cancer. Subjects included physician, physician assistant, nursing, dental, dental hygiene, dental assisting, and dental technology program directors, deans, or faculty members identified as the most knowledgeable about the oral cancer content in their curricula. Respondents' perceptions of oral cancer content in their curricula were assessed using a survey developed and mailed to 144 subjects. A total of 74 usable surveys were returned. Descriptive statistics were compiled. A second data method was utilized for four disciplines. Structured interviews were conducted with 19 physician, physician assistant, dental, and dental hygiene program directors or identified faculty members. Content analysis identified five major themes including delivery of content, student preparation, teaching methods and materials, images, and modules. An analysis of the programs' curricula identified several similarities and differences. All disciplines require intra- and extraoral examinations that include visual and tactile palpation of lymph nodes. Various instructional methods were utilized, with lecture, CD-ROM, slides and discussion identified as the most common methods. All disciplines perceived that oral cancer knowledge is important for their graduates. All disciplines supported tobacco and alcohol cessation as required parts of their curricula. Dental disciplines devoted more time for oral cancer instruction than medical disciplines. None of the programs observe or perform biopsies regularly. Dentists scored lowest in preparation in the areas of tobacco cessation, alcohol cessation, performing biopsies of lesions, teaching self-exams, and differential diagnosis of lesions. Physicians and physician assistants scored lowest on knowledge of diagnostic tests, identifying resources for updating oral cancer information, referral protocols and follow-up protocol after referral. Medical disciplines indicated they would probably not attend continuing education programs specifically about oral cancer, indicating it would be wise to embed oral cancer content within other continuing education program topics. Medical disciplines indicated a strong interest in hands-on training in performing oral cancer examinations. Faculty would utilize a training module for oral cancer assuming it was short, accurate, and contained excellent visuals. Preferred methods for a module include CD-ROM, slides, PowerPoint, and web-based formats..
