The efficacy of tailored messages on women's utilization of breast screening over time has not been demonstrated often or thoroughly. The study aim was to test the effects of tailored messages on women's mammography screening and clinical breast examination. This experiment was guided by a theory of care-seeking behavior and Triandis' theory of behavior. Participants were 797 mid-western women who were 51-80 years old and had not had mammography as recommended; 42% had some college, 69% had some private health insurance. In a randomized controlled trial, participants were assigned to condition: a) no-contact, b) recommendations about screening, or c) recommendations plus discussion tailored on individual beliefs, feelings, and resources regarding screening. Messages were delivered by advanced practice nurses via telephone. Screening behaviors were assessed via telephone interview three to six months post-intervention and 13-16 months later. In repeated measures analyses, both messages increased utilization in the short term, but tailored messages increased utilization in the long term. External barriers to screening were associated inversely with screening. Clinicians can offer individually tailored discussions about breast screening -- especially to women with external barriers -- to increase women's sustained utilization of breast screening.
