Abstract:
For Mexican-American women receiving breast cancer treatment, a number of factors may decrease access to health care resources and decrease ability to make full use of oncology support interventions designed to reduce uncertainty and enhance self-help/self-care. The purposes of this analysis were to assess the role of age, education, income, functional status, religiosity, faith in God, sources of information and tumor stage as moderators of the uncertainty management intervention on specific outcomes including cancer knowledge, symptom management, and patient-provider communication. Ninety-five Mexican-American women from a Southwestern state who were receiving breast cancer adjuvant therapy provided data across three points in time, in total over a seven month time period. Time 1 was timed to be when side effects of the medical treatment began to appear. Women were randomly assigned to intervention or control (natural learning condition) groups at time of entry into the study. Mean age was 60 years and 50% were married. Seventy-two percent had Stage 0 - Stage IIB disease. A bilingual/bicultural nurse-client manager delivered the 10 week telephone intervention. The moderators tested included the person, disease and contextual variables presented in earlier papers. Language preferences for completing the data booklets was also considered as a moderator. Sources of information, age, religiosity and physical functioning predicted intervention effectiveness in this group of older Mexican-American women. Language preferences did not emerge as a significant moderator.
