PRE-VIEW: Development and Pilot Testing of An Interactive Video Doctor Plus Provider Alert to Increase Cancer Screening.



Interventions to increase recommended cancer screening tests and discussions are needed.


We developed PRE-VIEW (The PREventive VIdeo Education in Waiting Rooms Program), a multimedia cancer prevention intervention for primary care clinics based on the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change We pilot tested PRE-VIEW An Interactive Video Doctor plus Provider Alert for feasibility and acceptability in primary care clinic settings in the San Francisco Bay Area, California in 2009-2010.


Eighty participants (33 men and 47 women; more than half non-white) at 5 primary care clinics were included. After PRE-VIEW, 87% of women were definitely interested in mammography when due and 77% were definitely interested in a Pap test. 73% of participants were definitely interested in colorectal cancer screening when due, and 79% of men were definitely interested in a discussion about the PSA test. The majority indicated that they received an appropriate amount of information from PRE-VIEW and that the information presented helped them decide whether or not to be screened.


PRE-VIEW was well received and accepted and potentially provides an innovative and practical way to support physicians' efforts to increase cancer screening.
