Access to health care is one of the essential factors in decreasing health disparities among minority women. However, providing support related-services that are culturally relevant remains an issue. Little research has been dome to identify which services provided during cancer treatment would be beneficial to the African American (AA) breast cancer survivors post-treatment. Purpose: To identify those related support services that participants might have used or have used during cancer treatment and those that the participants indicated that they would like to have continued using post-treatment. Conceptual Model: Mullen's (1985) concept of survivorship was used to guide the research design and process. Methods: The study design involved two phases consisting of a mailed survey and a structured interview. Only the results of the Breast Cancer Service Needs Instrument will be reported here. The participants consisted of members from the Sisters Network, Inc. (Michigan and Ohio chapters) and the University of Michigan's Women's Health Registry. Results: The participants were able to identify those services that were useful during cancer treatment, as well as those services that they would like to have continued. Implications: The findings provide a foundation for target interventions to improve the quality of life for African American breast cancer survivors in the extended phase of survivorship. Keywords: Cancer survivorship, related service needs, and minority women's health.
