Despite current evidence for the increased risk and incidence of breast cancer with age, many older women are not having mammograms. A mammogram can show an abnormality before it is felt. Early detection is the key in preventing death due to breast cancer. The purpose of this study is to identify and describe factors that influence women 65 and older in their utilization of mammography. The Health Belief Model (HBM) is the framework for this study, which proposed that motivation for health promotion is a result of the expectation to reduce the susceptibility and/or affect the severity of the disease. Examining the HBM variables of benefits and barriers will provide greater insight into the screening behavior of older women. A descriptive design with a survey methodology was used to examine the perceived benefits and barriers for mammography in older women. The survey included a demographic questionnaire developed by the investigator and a 12 question Benefits and Barriers for Mammography Questionnaire developed by Victoria Champion (Champion, 1995, and 1999). Through the method of convenience sampling, 42 women 65 and older completed the survey. In the data analysis, the mean for each benefit and barrier item has been calculated and will be ranked in an ordinal fashion. Pearson correlation will be used to determine whether there is a correlation between increasing age of participants and benefits and barriers scores. A one-way analysis of variance will explore the relationships of perception of health status, history of breast cancer, and date of last mammogram to benefits and barriers. Results of the data will provide information on the factors that influence older women to have or not have a mammogram. Health care providers can focus on these specific areas in the development of interventions to promote mammography utilization in older women.
