Cancer is the leading cause of death for female Asian Americans and the breast is one of the primary sites of cancer in Chinese women. Although a number of studies have used constructs from the Health Belief Model to examine their relationship with mammogram screening, the validity and reliability of these instruments in Chinese women have not been consistently examined. The purpose of this study was to describe the psychometric properties of a culturally sensitive questionnaire to measure Chinese women’s beliefs (susceptibility, seriousness, benefits, and barriers) related to breast cancer and mammogram screening. The items developed for the questionnaire were drawn from a comprehensive literature review and focus group meetings. The instruments were translated using the back translation technique and evaluated by a panel of professional experts and lay experts. A total of 220 Chinese American women aged 40 to 85 years residing in a suburban Midwestern community were included in the sample. Psychometric testing demonstrated satisfactory internal consistency and validity of the instrument for this group of women. Cronbach’s á for the subscales ranged from 0.77 to 0.90. Construct validity was supported by exploring the factor structure of the instrument using confirmatory factor analysis and testing correlations with mammography compliance. AN: MN030303
