The Impact of Mailing Psychoeducational Materials to Women with Abnormal Mammograms
American Journal of Public Health. 1992 May;82(5) :729-730
AbstractA randomized trial was conducted to evaluate the impact of mailed psychoeducational materials on adherence to subsequent annual mammography among women with prior abnormal mammograms. The results showed a 13% increment in adherence among women who received this intervention. This effect was independent of all sociodemographic and medical variables examined. We conclude that mailed psychoeducational materials may be an effective mechanism to improve adherence among women with abnormal mammogram results.
