The purpose of this directed project was to provide an educational intervention designed to increase young adult Japanese American (JA) women's knowledge of breast cancer screening guidelines and benefits, specifically to those residing in Southern California.
A pretest-posttest design was utilized to determine the baseline level of knowledge regarding breast cancer screening among young adult JA women residing in Southern California. This methodology aided the investigation of the effectiveness of an educational intervention designed to provide knowledge regarding breast cancer screening benefits among young adult JA women. Testing instruments were developed by the researcher.
The project resulted in improved knowledge of breast cancer screening guidelines and benefits following the educational intervention presentation as evidenced by improved posttest questionnaire scores.
