Some women have not sought mammography because their practitioners have not recommended it. However, the particular dimensions of practitioners' communications that predict mammography have not been delineated well. As part of a larger study guided by a theory of care seeking behavior, the purpose of this study was to delineate what particular dimensions of practitioners' communications best predict mammography use. A longitudinal, correlational design was used. Participants were 797 mid-western women, aged 51-80, who had not had mammograms as often as recommended. Women's reports of practitioner communications--in general and in particular about mammography--as well as their subsequent mammography use were assessed through two telephone interviews that were one year apart. We examined correlations between practitioner communications reported at the first interview and mammography use reported at the second interview. Practitioners' encouragement, explanation, and reminders about mammography, as well as assistance with scheduling, predicted women's subsequent mammography use. Having an identified practitioner and seeing either an internist or OB/GYN also predicted mammography use. In conclusion, health care practitioners can improve their particular interactions with clients to increase mammography use among women who have not had mammography as recommended. This project was supported by a National Institutes of Health grant (R01 CA/NR58978) and a supplement from the Office of Research on Women's Health.
