Survey about cancer and dental care; dentists' awareness, attitudes and practice in the Loddon Mallee Region
Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Services (LMICS) invites you to participate in a seven-minute survey on dentists' cancer knowledge and practice in the Loddon Mallee Region (LMR), particularly related to oral cancer.
LMICS is the Service Improvement Network for cancer in the LMR. Cancer is both an acute and chronic disease experienced by many people in the LMR with over 2,300 new cases of cancer diagnosed in 2017. The majority of patients in the LMR receive treatment for Head and Neck cancer in Melbourne. This often includes pre and post treatment dental care either in the private sector or at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (Peter Mac).
Through this survey LMICS aims to learn more about dentists' knowledge, attitudes and practice regarding cancer and dental care and whether they want additional training. LMICS will also find out if dentists are interested in being listed in a service directory that cancer clinicians can access for referral purposes.
Attitudes and training information provided in this survey will be anonymous. No individual will be identifiable unless they voluntarily provide their contact details. A report may be published on the LMICS website at www.lmics.org.au or will be available on request.
If you have further questions, please email Cheryl Martin, email@example.com
All questions in the survey refer to cancer as a generalised illness unless specific reference to a type of cancer is made.
