Educational Intervention to Increase Genetic Counseling Use in Hispanic Breast Cancer Survivors.
The purpose of this study is to review and refine the materials used to raise awareness and use of genetic counseling among Spanish-speaking breast cancer survivors who may have increased risk for having cancer run in their families due to genetics.
Aim 1: Refine and expand an educational intervention (brochure) to increase uptake of GC for Spanish-speaking/preferring high-risk BC survivors. Aim 2: Explore the preliminary efficacy of the educational intervention compared to standard clinical care (factsheet). We hypothesize that women in the intervention group will have higher uptake of GC, greater increases in knowledge, and more perceived benefits related to GC compared to the control group. Aim 3: Explore the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary impact (e.g., satisfaction, knowledge, distress) of telephone GC services for Spanish-speaking/preferring high-risk BC survivors.
