Abstract (type = abstract)
Carcinoma of the breast is the most common cancer diagnosed and the second leading cause of cancer death among women in New Jersey. Early detection through mammography screening is the most effective and sensitive way to reduce breast cancer morbidity and mortality. Yet, the rates for screening are low, particularly among immigrant women of color, a rapidly increasing segment of the immigrant population. To improve screening rates, culturally sensitive educational interventions that are theory based have shown promise in improving breast cancer awareness and screening among immigrant populations. The purpose of this project was to increase breast cancer awareness and the intention to screen among a sample of uninsured immigrant women. Using the Health Belief and Transtheoretical model as a framework, uninsured African immigrant women were recruited from a local church and an educational intervention was implemented. The educational intervention included information on the risk factors and symptoms associated with breast cancer, the importance of routine mammogram screening, and ways to access free cancer screening services either through governmental or non-governmental organizations. Participants completed a self-administered demographic survey, a pre-and post-test using the Breast Cancer Knowledge Test, the Mammography Self-efficacy Scale to assess their knowledge on how to obtain a mammogram and their intention to screen, and a survey to evaluate the intervention. Descriptive statistics, non-parametric tests, and McNemar's test were used to analyze the data. At the end of the intervention, participants showed increased knowledge about their lifetime risk of breast cancer, signs and symptoms of breast cancer, how and where to obtain a mammogram and their intent to get screened.
