5093.0 Evidence-based breast and cervical cancer prevention: Influences on patient and provider decision-making

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 8:30 AM
Despite efforts to promote early detection of cervical and breast cancer, significant disparities in cancer-preventive behaviors exist. Since 2006, human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination has been recommended as prevention against cervical cancer and HPV-associated cancers. This session will provide an overview of the recommendations for breast and cervical cancer prevention and articulate the various factors that influence cancer-preventive behaviors in women. Studies identifying influences on decision-making processes for evidence-based breast and cervical cancer prevention using diverse mixed methods approaches will be presented with findings from a variety of stakeholders including adolescents, minority women, and providers. Findings from the studies may inform targeted interventions to reduce breast and cervical cancer disparities.
Session Objectives: 1. Discuss how diverse factors related to decision-making and cancer prevention may inform breast and cervical cancer interventions; 2. Describe the interactions of various modifiers such as social support, socioeconomic position, family history of cancer, and provider perceptions and their influence on women’s cancer-preventive behaviors; and 3. Identify recommendations for breast and cervical cancer prevention including age-appropriate screening and HPV vaccines.
