Abstract:

THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR A SIX MONTH STUDY, EXPLORATORY IN NATURE, TO SURVEY A SYSTEMATIC SAMPLE OF 100 HISPANIC HOUSEHOLDS IN THE WASHINGTON, D.C. METROPOLITAN AREA, INTERVIEWING ALL ADULT WOMEN (OVER 18) AND THEIR MALE PARTNERS IN THE HOUSEHOLD. THE INTERVIEW, TO BE CONDUCTED IN ENGLISH OR SPANISH, WILL EXPLORE KNOWLEDGE, PERSONAL ATTITUDES, AND ACTION TENDENCIES ABOUT BREAST CANCER (DEPENDENT VARIABLES). IN ADDITION, DATA WILL BE COLLECTED ON SOCIAL SUPPORT NETWORKS WITHIN THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY, FOR A CONTEXTUAL ANALYSIS OF THE INFLUENCE OF FAMILY, CHURCH, SCHOOL, AND HEALTH CENTER ON BREAST CANCER-RELATED ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR OF HISPANIC WOMEN. THE PROPOSED PHASE II DIRECTION OF THE PROJECT WILL BE TO IDENTIFY THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FAMILY, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL VARIABLES THATINFLUENCE THE HISPANIC WOMAN'S UNIQUE BELIEFS ABOUT BREAST CANCER, AND THE WAYS IN WHICH THE STUDY'S APPLIED PHASE CAN BE INSTRUMENTAL IN CHANGING THEM. CULTURALLY RELEVANT EDUCATIONAL/INFORMATIONAL TOOLS CAN THEN BE DEVISED TO IMPROVE HER UNDERSTANDING OF THE DISEASE -- TOOLS THAT CAN BE UTILIZED BY GOVERNMENT, SOCIAL AGENCIES, AND COMMERCIAL ORGANIZATIONS TO REDUCE THE HUMAN AND SOCIAL COSTS OF BREASTCANCER IN THE HISPANIC-AMERICAN POPULATION.
