  1. Fulltext. Using physician correspondence and postcard reminders to promote mammography use.

    Article - En anglais



    In a health maintenance organization that mails letters to women recommending that they schedule mammograms, we conducted a randomized trial to evaluate simple methods of increasing the use of screening mammography.


    Using a 2x2 factorial design, we tested the effects of (1) mailing the recommendation letter from each woman's primary care physician rather than from the program director and (2) sending a subsequent reminder postcard.


    Sending a reminder postcard nearly doubled the odds that women would get mammograms within 1 year (participate).
