Trial Information

Measurement of Cancer-Related Risk Perception in Smokers


The goal of the study is to develop and provide initial evidence for the reliability and
validity of a measure of cancer-related risk perception. As such, the primary outcomes of
the study will be initial construct validity (convergent validity and discriminant validity)
of the proposed scale as evidenced by correlations of this test with other tests that vary
in the degree of association to the proposed construct of cancer-related risk perception. It
is anticipated that the cancer-related risk perception scale will correlate most highly
(.50-.60) with measures of tobacco and environmental risk exposures, readiness to quit
smoking, and family cancer history.
