Integrated Community Education Model: Breast Health Awareness to Impact Late-Stage Breast Cancer
Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing, 08/12/2011
Northington LD et al. – Race and ethnicity play roles in breast cancer mortality, particularly for African American women. As a result, a three–pronged integrated community education model (i.e., faith–based, community, and state agencies) was generated and tested in a medically underserved area with high mortality rates from breast cancer to increase participation in breast health education, provide early screening and detection practices, and provide access to annual mammograms and referral sources.
