Identifying Factors Assoc w/Disability-NONE IDEN TIFIED!

ABSTRACT: Identifying factors associated with disability-related differences in breast cancer screening (United States)

Objective: The purpose of this study was to identify factors that could explain breast cancer underutilization among women age 40 and older with disabilities.

Conclusions: Reasons for the underutilization of breast cancer screening among women with long-term disabilities remain elusive.

Future studies need to examine additional factors in order to improve screening use, especially among women with long-term disabilities who are 50-69 years of age, for whom screening has been shown to be beneficial in terms of reduced risk of mortality from breast cancer.
