This study evalu-ated a two-step intervention for mammography screening among older women.
Four hundred and sixty women. identified from physician-practices. were randomized to a control or a two-step intervention (physician letter and peer counseling call) group.
Women in the interven-tion group who obtaihed a mammo-gram received a grocery coupon.
Over the 12 months of the study, more women in the intervention group than in the control group obtained mammograms (38% vs 16%). The most dramatic difference was in the higher odds that women in the intervention group would obtain a mammogram within 2 months (odds ratio=10.5).
The intervention significantly increased screening mammography.
Future efforts must be multifaceted and incorporate the unique concerns of older women.
