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.
