Abstract

Using a prospective design, variables from several relevant social psychological theories that would predict breast self‐examination were identified. The participants included a probability sample of 362 women who were 35 or older. Instruments were tested for validity and reliability. Data were collected from each participant twice, 1 year apart, using an in‐person interview for Time 1 and a telephone interview for Time 2. Results of standardized path coefficients (beta) indicated that breast self‐examination (BSE) at Time 2 was directly related to BSE at Time 1 (.76). Indirect paths for susceptibility (.40), health motivation (.46), and barriers (‐.54) were identified. All paths mentioned were significant (p5.01). Findings have implications for interventions to increase BSE in women 35 and older.
