Breast and cervical cancer screening among low-income women in Nebraska: findings from the Every Woman Matters program, 1993-2004.
J Health Care Poor Underserved. 2008 Aug; 19(3):797-813.JH

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To examine the likelihood of enrollees in the Nebraska Every Woman Matters program being screened for breast and cervical cancer.

METHODS

We explored the relationship between sociodemographic characteristics and receiving cancer screening services.

RESULTS

Older and Native American women were more likely than younger and White women to have mammograms ordered [adjusted odds ratio (OR)=1.41, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.08, 1.85]. African American [OR=0.54, 95% CI 0.46, 0.64] and Native American women [OR=0.47, 95% CI 0.39, 0.55] were less likely than White women to have clinical breast exams performed. Native American [OR=0.19, 95% CI 0.16, 0.23] and African American women [OR=0.56, 95% CI 0.46, 0.68] were less likely than White women to have a Pap test performed.

CONCLUSION

Receiving cancer screening services was related to race; thus, understanding barriers for screening for minority women is warranted.
