  1. Mammography usage and the Health Belief Model.

    Article - En anglais

    Regular screening mammograms for asymptomatic women are the most effective method for early detection of breast cancer.

    This study assessed the relative influence of Health Belief Model (HBM) constructs on prior mammography usage and the intention to obtain mammograms with data from a sample of 1,057 women over the age of 35 years residing in an urban community in the United States.

    Covariance structure analysis with latent variables was used initially to perform a confirmatory factor analysis of indicators of Socioeconomic Status (SES), Perceived Susceptibility, Perceived Barriers, Perceived Benefits, Cues to Action, Prior Mammography, and Future Intentions.
