Promoting Adherence to Mammography Use in Chinese Women


This study examined the efficacy of a culturally-tailored video in increasing mammography
use among non-adherent Chinese women (vs. a generic video and control fact sheet). A total
of 671 Chinese American women from metropolitan Washington, DC and New York city were
enrolled to participate in this study. The majority of participants were recruited from
on-site community events and some were recruited through public advertisement and referrals.
Participants who completed baseline assessment were randomized to one of the three groups:
1) viewing an 18-minute cultural video, 2) viewing an 18-minute generic video, and 3)
reading a fact sheet (control group). Participants were interviewed twice after
intervention:1) process evaluation 2-4 weeks post intervention regarding participants'
feedback on the materials and repeated key measures of knowledge, cultural views, and health
beliefs and 2) outcome evaluation six-months post intervention that assesses actual receipt
of mammography use.
