    Article - En anglais

    This study evaluated the effects of a refresher instructional audiotape on breast self-examination (BSE) proficiency 6 months after BSE had been trained to criteria.

    Subjects (n = 54), who were undergraduate women, were trained in group sessions to perform BSE competently.

    Subjects were randomly assigned to one of two « maintenance » groups: tape or no tape.

    Tape-group subjects received a BSE tape at the end of their training session.

    Subjects in both groups received monthly mailed prompts.

    At 6 months posttraining, subjects were videotaped in a clinic environment while performing BSE and 10 components of the exam subsequently were evaluated.

    The results indicated that tape-group subjects showed significantly better performance than controls on four components, including amount of breast area examined.
