We examined the psychosocial impact of implementing a generalised campaign to promote mammography screening in an Australian inner city community.
Prior to the campaign, telephone interviews were conducted with 628 randomly selected women aged 45-70,285 in central Sydney (where the screening programme operated) and 343 from the rest of Sydney.
A second cross-sectional survey was conducted two years after the campaign commenced.
The campaign achieved an estimated 21% attendance rate in an eligible population of 43,000 women over a period of 22 months.
Overall the campaign reached a large section of the eligible community, with 70% of women being aware of the van's existence.
