    Abstract

    The goal of this project was to develop effective and accessible media for breast cancer patients about integrative therapies to support the medical treatment of breast cancer. Our team worked with the Bangkok Breast Cancer Support Group and the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer to develop a DVD about integrative therapies for distribution to breast cancer patients. Through meeting these objectives, our team acquired skills in developing professional reports and presentations, implementing methods such as interviews and genre analyses, coding and analyzing data, and creating videos. The team also gained cross-cultural experience in project management, communication, and teamwork while collaborating with Thai students at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand.
