Abstract

        This study aimed to evaluate and measure the satisfaction of the using online breast cancer monitoring and care database program provided by heath personnel in Public Health Regions 4 and 5. The research study group was divided into 2 groups: 207 health personnel who attended the on line breast cancer surveillance and care database program workshop in 2008-2009, and 41 administrators of work sections recorded in the program. Data was gathered using questionnaires between January and March 20 I 0, and analyzed by percentage statistics.


        Most of the health personnel were female, aged 36-50 years old, the graduates and worked as professional nurses in community hospitals. The program was used by 39.61 % of the health personnel for breast cancer surveillance, mostly in community hospitals, had the role of both the authorized and program-recording persons, with uncertain frequency of data-entry, and mostly thought that the program had a fairly convenient format to use. 37.80% of the personnel could use the program in low level and the most aspect where the target groups hadn't been working on was the report writing to summarize the breast cancer surveillance campaign performance results. More than half of the health personnel were highly satisfied with the program; the most satisfying aspect was the program security management to keep confidentiality of the patients' profiles. The problems found were the retard loading and the occasional inaccessibility of the website. The suggestions from the health personnel was that a program workshop should be organized once a year. All the participating administrators were satisfied with the program and most of them could use the program data to improve and develop the breast cancer surveillance in their work sections. Their suggestion was that the program should be systematized to cover every health centers as a whole.


        Therefore, Health Center 4 Ratchaburi and our related work sections should organize the program workshop for their personnel to make continuous use of the program and expand the program use to cover all areas in Public Health Region 4 and 5.
