Abstract

Background and Significance of Study

Disability is a mental or physical impairment that limits one or more activities of daily living.  According to the Chartbook on Women and Disability (2012) website, one out of every five Americans in the United States has a disability.    Although, the rates of mammography screening over the past 30 years for African American women have increased, there are barriers which still exist for older African American women with disabilities.  Reports indicated that women with disabilities are at risk for having limited access to mammography screening due to various reasons.  Some of the reasons include barriers (Piotrowski & Snell, 2007).  However, little has been found in the literature that reported on barriers to mammography screening among African American women over age 50 with disabilities. 

Purpose

The purpose of the study is to describe the perspectives of African American women 50 years of age and older with a disability in accessing mammography screening.   

 Research Design

This study will use an exploratory descriptive qualitative design.  

Theoretical Framework    

The Health Belief Model will be used to guide the study. 

Research Questions

Three research questions regarding perceived threats and cues to action, perceived barriers and perceived facilitators for mammography screening for African American women age 50 years and older with disabilities.

Findings and Conclusions

            Themes will be identified and conclusions will be discussed.
