Social‐cognitive aspects of underserved Latinas preparing to undergo genetic cancer risk assessment for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer

Social‐cognitive aspects of underserved Latinas preparing to undergo genetic cancer risk... Objectives: As Latinos are a growing ethnic group in the United States, it is important to understand the socio‐cultural factors that may be associated with cancer screening and prevention in this population. The socio‐cultural factors that may affect preparedness to undergo genetic cancer risk assessment (GCRA) deserve particular attention. The pre‐GCRA period can provide insight into variables that may influence how medically underserved Latinas, with limited health resources and access, understand hereditary cancer information and subsequently implement cancer risk management recommendations. This study explores social, cognitive and cultural variables in Latinas prior to undergoing GCRA. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psycho-Oncology Wiley

Abstract

Objectives: As Latinos are a growing ethnic group in the United States, it is important to understand the socio‐cultural factors that may be associated with cancer screening and prevention in this population. The socio‐cultural factors that may affect preparedness to undergo genetic cancer risk assessment (GCRA) deserve particular attention. The pre‐GCRA period can provide insight into variables that may influence how medically underserved Latinas, with limited health resources and access, understand hereditary cancer information and subsequently implement cancer risk management recommendations. This study explores social, cognitive and cultural variables in Latinas prior to undergoing GCRA.
