Abstract:
Maximizing the percentage of women who overcome breast cancer is currently dependent on routine breast cancer screeningùan activity which can be enhanced by oncology nurses. Rural women are particularly at risk because they frequently do not take advantage of screening methods that are readily available to their urban counterparts. Economic factors, sociocultural differences, and isolation of living in more remote areas combine to impede screening and health promotion for rural populations. Eighty percent of uninsured US individuals are full-time workers or dependents. Remote rural residents are less likely to have health benefits than urban workers because they are more likely to earn lower wages and to work for small businesses with fewer employees making coverage costs by employers prohibitive. The purpose of this project was to provide breast health education and access to no cost breast cancer screening to rural, low income, medically underserved women. The HANYS Model provided a framework for developing an Employee Mammography In-Reach program. An In-Reach Program can offer a cost effective method to reach substantial numbers of women for breast cancer screening in rural areas. Literature does not support that rural employers have been involved in breast cancer screening programs or that the HANYS Model has been used outside large urban institutions. The goals of the project were to: 1) provide breast health education and access to no cost mammography screening to rural low income women, 2) use an Employee In-Reach model to provide this program to female employees in local businesses and 3) provide sustainability by educating a business-based breast health resource. Applying the HANYS Model, nurses from the Southeastern Indiana Cancer Health Network (SEICHN) collaborated with three small businesses in two rural communities to provide breast cancer education and free screening to employees. Results indicated that over 4/5Æs of all female employees participated. In each business a breast health contact person was educated for providing ongoing breast health support and ensuring an ongoing link with SEICHN. Based on overwhelmingly positive project evaluation by employers, employees, and nurses, the HANYS Model is recommended to oncology nurses for consideration in planning cancer screening programs.
