Abstract

The aim was to determine the immediate influence of a validated patient information leaflet (PIL) on oral cancer and knowledge in primary care attenders. Participants were patients (n = 800) attending their primary health carl provider from 14 general practices (eight dental and six medical) in thenorth west of England. Measures were a previously validated knowledge questionnaire (36 dichotomous items), self-reported dental service attendance history and demographic variables. The results showed that patients who had read the oral cancer PIL demonstrated a significant increase in knowledge regardless of clinical setting (F[1,739] = 246.24, P < 0.0001). Patients showed improvements in selecting the correct signs and risk factors associatedwith disease. Immediate knowledge gain from a simple PIL about oral cancerwas found and independent of the primary care facility, where the PIL was distributed. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
