1.Objective: To explore participation in breast cancer screening tests and mediating factors of a group of Korean women for promoting early detection of breast cancer. 2.Design: Survey (Methodological triangulation) 3.Population, Sample, Setting, Year: For the qualitative phase, 336 Korean women without any diagnosed disease aged 40-60 years who could read and write Korean, and were working in Sindang Market and Sinsegae Department Store in Seoul, Korea were recruited through a health center from November 15, 2000 to February 28, 2001. For the qualitative phase, 20 women were recruited among participants in quantitative part. 4.Concept of Variables Studied together or Intervention and Outcome Variables: Independent variables: Breast Cancer Screening Questionnaire (BCSQ) which was developed using Health Belief Model Scale, Breast Self Examination Self-efficacy and Health Self-Determinism Index. Dependent Variable : Participation in Breast Screening Tests(BCST) 5. Methods: Questionnaire including seven questions on six demographic characteristics, three questions on participation in BCST, and a modified BCSQ were self-administered, and in-depth interviews were conducted using interview guidelines. 6. Findings: Korean women were less likely to participate in BCST, and suggested several reasons for the low participation rate : (a) lack of knowledge and skills, (b) lack of available resources, and (c) lack of recognition about the benefits of BCST. The following themes emerged from the qualitative analysis: (a)I was embarrassed by the clinical breast exam, (b)I never see breast cancer patients, (c)I don't have time to think about breast cancer, (d)Breast cancer means death, (e)If I have money, I will do clinical breast exam. 7. Conclusions: Educational program on breast cancer screening should be developed in Korea. 8. Implications: The future education program on breast screening tests should incorporate basic knowledge and skills related to BCST, cultural impacts on women's participation in BCST, and financial issues related to BCST.
