The purpose of this study was to test the effect of a theoretically based nurse-delivered intervention on BSE behavior.
A 2 x 2 prospective, randomized, factorial design yielded four groups: control, belief intervention, procedural intervention, and procedural/belief intervention.
A total of 301 women were randomly selected from a target population.
One year following intervention, significant differences in self-reported proficiency, observer-rated proficiency, and sensitivity (lump detection) were found between the Procedural and Control Group and the Procedural/Belief and Control Group.
Significant increases were found on observer-rated proficiency and sensitivity for the Procedural/Belief Group when compared to the Belief Group.
