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