The American College of Physicians and The United States Preventive Services Task force have recommended that providers counsel menopausal women of all races regarding HRT. However, research is needed to guide counseling and decision making interventions for women of diverse and vulnerable populations. The purpose of this exploratory study is to obtain relevant preliminary data through these specific aims: (1) to describe the preferences regarding information source, oral vs. printed format, formal vs informal environment, and use of “African American communication styles ” vs. “mainstream American” in presenting/interpreting HRT information; (2) to explore the relevance of culture-based constructs including African -American communication, self-identified cultural generation of reference, and degree of acculturation. Guiding concepts are from O’Connor’s Decision Making and Bell& Evans’African American Acculturation rameworks. Data will be collected from 20 women, ages 40-60, using focus groups and a 26-item Questionnaire. Content analysis and theme derivation from focus group transcriptions and descriptive statistics from questionnaire data will be performed. The preliminary results and conclusions will follow completion of the study.
