Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This session will decribe chronic disease screening interventions targeting high risk populations. Our presentaions will explore the feasibility and acceptability of a stigma management intervention for Spanish-speaking Hispanic/Latino HIV+ MSM in Puerto Rico; compare a two-parallel-arm randomized controlled trial that will compare the effect of a brief, targeted motivational video plus community nurse navigator outreach intervention against a video plus community nurse navigator and targeted patient media enhanced intervention; describe the feasibility of a peer-driven intervention to educate Bronx Latina women about cervical cancer prevention and the HPV vaccine; discuss the outcome of a qualitative study was conducted with Black women participating in a community navigation program who did not complete their screening mammogram to identify specific barriers inhibiting screening utilization; describe a study focused on breast cancer education among Amish and Mennonite women who have previously received the culturally competent intervention, community-led breast cancer program.
Session Objectives: Discuss the preliminary feasibility of a stigma management intervention for Spanish-speaking Hispanic/Latino HIV+MSM. Describe community engaged research strategies to improve FIT acceptibility and among Appalachian populations. Discuss the feasibility of using a peer-driven intervention with ethnic minorities. List barriers to screening for African American women in underserved communities and identify solutions to improve screening rates in high risk populations. Identify barriers to delivering breast cancer education to Amish and Mennonite communities.
