Women over 65 are at increased risk for breast cancer and less likely to obtain mammograms than younger women. According to Bandura (1994), women aren't obtaining mammograms because they lack confidence in their ability to obtain mammograms (behaviors such as communicating, scheduling, and obtaining transportation to sites). This study documented the psychometric properties of Champion's 1997 Self-Efficacy Scale (SES) for mammography use in women over 65 and examined relationships between demographics, SES scores, and mammography use. Questionnaires were distributed to 160 Midwestern women over age 65, with a return rate of 84% (n=134 subjects). Factor analysis of SES suggested a one factor solution with an Eigenvalue of 6.06 (61% total variance) and a coefficient alpha of 0.94. Married women (t=2.81, p=.006); and rural women (t=3.832; p=.000) had higher SES scores, and women with higher SES scores were more likely to have had a mammogram in the past 12 months (t=2.38, p=.019). In this study, psychometric properties of the SES were adequate, and scores on SES were related to mammography use. The SES can identify women at high-risk for not obtaining mammograms, and education aimed at increasing self-efficacy can be targeted for these women.
