Use of Repeated Telephone Reminder Based Training to Improve Participation of Breast Cancer Screenings Behaviors


Aydanur Aydin*, Ayla Gürsoy, Busra Dede and Merve Ozdemir

Background: This research aims to evaluate the effect of repeated reminder-supported education on the use of breast cancer early diagnosis methods. Breast cancer early diagnosis methods are known worldwide, but screening behavior is not at the desired level.

Materials and Methods: The semi-experimental study was completed with 153 women. Women were divided into three groups after training on early diagnosis methods. The first group was reminded by phone every month, and the second group was intermittent. The third group was not reminded and all women were re-interviewed in both the sixth month and the first year.

Results: There was a significant increase in the number of women using early diagnosis methods in both regular and intermittent reminders. In both groups of reminders, an increase in the application to mammography was increased. It was determined that there was a significant change in the scale scores of the Champion health belief model in both regular and intermittent reminders, and the level after training remained constant in the non-reminded group.

Conclusion: Even for one-year, intermittent reminder does not seem to be partially effective in the use of early diagnostic methods, and regular reminder has a positive effect. In this context, it is recommended that products containing regular reminders are needed for the management of similar problems of the society and the use of these products is extended.
