Effectiveness of Community Education for Breast Cancer Screening

Panhandle Breast Health expects that by improving public education about the importance of personalized screening, we will see earlier diagnoses and reduced breast mortality. And, we're not the only ones. The Journal of Breast Imaging recently published the results of a study on this topic.

Patient participants completed voluntary, anonymous pre-event and post-event surveys to determine if the presented educational program led to attitude changes. Respondents reported decreased anxiety and fear regarding breast cancer screening following educational sessions. Participants stated they were more likely to schedule breast cancer screening based on individual risk factors. This study demonstrates the importance and effectiveness of community-based educational programs in increasing knowledge of risk-based screening.
