Abstract

Among Korean-American women, breast cancer is the second leading cause of death. Although the incidence is lower than that of Caucasian women, Korean-American women are more likely to be diagnosed at more advanced stages of breast cancer. Among the suggested methods in breast-cancer prevention are early detection and routine screenings. The present study was conducted to explore the impact of breast-cancer educational workshops on breast-cancer knowledge and breast self-examination (BSE) practices among Korean-American women. Knowledge of breast cancer and health beliefs (perceived benefits, perceived barriers, and perceived self-efficacy) were examined before and after the educational workshop. The results indicated that educational workshops have a positive influence on breast-cancer knowledge, health beliefs, and the intent to practice BSE in the future
