Abstract
A randomized pilot study was conducted involving 69 third-year nursing students (ClinicalTrials.gov ID: NCT05270252). Students were randomly assigned to the CG (n = 34) or the intervention group (n = 35), using computer-generated randomization. The CG completed the third-year nursing, and the intervention group received in addition the Learning & Care educational intervention. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness, feasibility, and acceptability of the Learning & Care for students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to care for survivors and their families. The intervention group significantly improved in knowledge (p = .004; -1.15, 95% confidence interval [CI] [-1.94, -0.37]), skills (p ≤ .0001; -13.51, 95% CI [-15.19, -11.83]), and attitudes (p = .006; -5.61, 95% CI [-8.81, -2.42]). The students' satisfaction was found to be high (93.75%). Offering a family nursing approach improves students' competence to care for long-term cancer survivors and their families.
