A RCT to Promote Mammography Adherence Among Chinese Immigrant Women
We will conduct a 4.5-year community-based RCT to study the impact of intervention
approaches (small-group video discussion vs. single video mode) on mammography used among
Chinese immigrant women. The small-group video discussion will be led by trained Chinese
community health educators and trained bilingual research staff using a standardized
structured protocol at all sites. In the single video mode, we will mail the intervention
materials to women to view and/or read at home. We will recruit 910 Chinese women through
our strong and well-established Chinese community partnerships in the metropolitan areas of
Washington, DC (Lead PI: Dr. Judy Wang, Georgetown University-GU), New York (Site PI: Dr.
Grace Ma at Temple University), and southern California (Site PI: Dr. Annette Maxwell,
University of California, Los Angeles-UCLA). Participants' eligibility are listed under
"eligibility criteria". We will not enroll US-born Chinese women as they are least likely
to face cultural and language barriers to mammography and less likely to engage in our
small-group discussion, which will be conducted in Chinese languages. Also, we will not
enroll short-term visitors as our study involves four interviews over a 2-year period.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Screening
