Foster, Wednesday, Breast Health 101: A Workshop Designed for the University Setting. Master of Public Health, June 6, 1998, 81 pp., 18 tables, 1 figure, bibliography, 43 titles. A study of 18-25 year old female undergraduates was conducted to describe their level of breast health awareness, evaluate changes in awareness after a breast health workshop, and determine the effectiveness of the education. Variation in responses were evaluated using a pre/post-questionnaire design. Participants scored lower at baseline on knowledge and proficiency variables. The knowledge/proficiency score was significantly higher at post-questionnaire in both study groups. Lack of skill was identified as a barrier to breast self-examination, but fear, embarrassment, and forgetfulness were not. Lack of knowledge was not a barrier of BSE frequency. BSE skill and frequency were significantly higher in the intervention group post-intervention.
