ethnodrama-logoFrom Dissemination to Intervention

For several years, Dr. Elizabeth Quinlan (University of Saskatchewan) and I co-led an innovative project featuring;

  • live performances,
  • videos of performances and interviews with study participants/performers,
  • infographics,
  • and an interactive website

in order to explore ethnodrama and lymphedema after breast cancer.

By using interactive ethnodrama as both a Knowledge Translation strategy and as a form of psychosocial support, our study;

  1. extended the application of ethnodrama as a KT strategy to the domain of arm morbidity, and
  2. provided a solid foundation for the development of new forms of psychosocial interventions for breast cancer survivors.
