Abstract:
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. and over 192,000 women are estimated to be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. Although breast cancer screening procedures have been shown to decrease morbidity and mortality, rural and un/underinsured women are not receiving these services at the same rate as other U.S. women. Four nursing faculty were funded for a project designed to increase breast cancer screening practices and the knowledge of breast cancer risk factors for women in four medically underserved rural counties. The goal was to implement a program to: 1) establish linkages among nurses and community organizations, 2) increase access to mammography screening for community women, 3) increase number of women knowledgeable about breast cancer screening and cancer risk factors, and 4) increase resources available (personnel and material) to provide ongoing programs. Phase 1: A training program, focusing on breast health, was presented to nurses from each of four counties. Phase 2: Project and county nurses joined to provide an education and screening program for area women. This program involved making free mammograms available through a mobile mammography unit which was brought to each county. Mammograms and educational programs were provided to 141 women. Data presented will include prior breast cancer screening practices, reasons for attending the program, demographics, and other health screening programs desired by the women. The four goals of the program were met. Several advanced practice nursing roles were implemented in this program including collaborator, resource for clinical nurses, and resource in obtaining funding, as well as the practice functions of promotion of health and wellness and patient education. This project can serve as a model strategy in underserved populations.
