Abstract

CONTEXT:

Resource centers in rural, underserved areas are implementing Consultation Planning (CP) to help women with breast cancer create a question list before a doctor visit.

PURPOSE:

To identify changes needed for acceptable delivery of CP to rural Native Americans and Latinas.

METHODS:

We interviewed and surveyed 27 Native American and Latino key informants. We coded interviews thematically, and calculated summary statistics for the survey data.

FINDINGS:

Native American and Latino respondents endorsed CP as culturally acceptable to their communities, while suggesting changes. Respondents also raised the topic of how to further support patients once they have successfully prepared a question list using CP.

CONCLUSIONS:

The resource centers implemented the requested changes.
