The ethodrama has a web site, and they ask for feedback:
We are pleased to announce the launch of a youtube video of a theatrical presentation concerning breast cancer survivorship.The video is a result of our CIHR-funded Dissemination to Intervention project uses theatrical performance (ethnodrama) to disseminate results on the psychosocial effects of lymphedema, the condition that arise from breast cancer surgery. The aim of the project is to change attitudes and practices of survivors and providers regarding their self-education, screening and referral patterns. The ethnodrama, developed by survivors and professional scriptwriters, is now being performed in several Canadian locations for audiences of breast cancer survivors and health care providers. Using surveys and follow-up interviews with audience members, the project explores the impact of the performance on the knowledge, attitudes and practices of the audience members regarding lymphedema
"The New Normal": Living with Lymphedema after Breast Cancer is a performance that addresses arm morbidity among breast cancer survivors.By using interactive ethnodrama as both a knowledge translation strategy and as a psycho-social intervention, our study 1) extends the application of ethnodrama as a knowledge translation strategy to the domain of arm morbidity, and 2) provides a solid foundation for the development of new forms of psychosocial interventions for breast cancer survivors.
There are a series of five (5) videos, all of which can be reached from this link: Lymphedema Ethnodramas.
Some comments from lymphedema patients on these videos:
