The launch of the Cancer IEC materials was followed by an IEC cancer materials training on 3rdMarch 2017 with participants from public hospitals and KENCO member organizations directly handling cancer patients participating. The training entailed power point presentations, interactive group work, group presentations and role play. 43 participants represented 10 counties.
The training ensured the health workers and those involved in cancer care emerged with an understanding on how the cancer education materials are to be used for patients, their caregivers and families, to train and equip the participants with the knowledge and skills of how to use the materials with patients and their families. Plans are well underway to roll out the IEC cancer materials to the public hospitals and KENCO member organizations as well as to train the remaining KENCO member organizations.
