Interactive CD-ROM on Cancer Genetics for Hispanics


This study will test ways to help improve Hispanic women's knowledge and understanding about
breast cancer risk and genetic testing for inherited cancer risk. These methods include
providing printed educational materials, using an educational computer program, and using
the computer program with the assistance of a lay health worker (a promotora).

If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete a questionnaire that will ask
about your personal health as well as your knowledge and attitudes toward cancer and genetic
testing. After the questionnaire is completed, you will be randomly assigned (as in the
roll of dice) to 1 of 3 study groups. One group will be asked to read educational materials.
Another group will use an educational computer program to learn about breast cancer risk and
genetic testing without guidance. Another group will use the computer program with the
guidance of a promotora.

Each of the 3 study groups should take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.

Immediately after participating in your assigned group, you will be asked to complete
another questionnaire that will ask about your knowledge and attitudes toward cancer and
genetic testing. You will also be contacted later by telephone to complete similar
questionnaires at about 1 month and 6 months after your study visit. Some women will be
asked to complete an additional questionnaire by telephone 1 week after reading the
educational materials or the computer program, and researchers will ask for permission to
audiotape this interview. It will take about 20 minutes to complete each of the
questionnaires used in this study.

This is an investigational study. Up to 414 women will take part in this study.
