Abstract

Deaf people encounter barriers to accessing cancer information. In this study, a graphically enriched educational video about cervical cancer was created in American Sign Language, with English open captioning and voice overlay. Deaf (n = 127) and hearing (n = 106) women completed cancer knowledge surveys before and after viewing the video. Hearing women yielded higher scores before the intervention. Both groups demonstrated a significant increase in general and cervical cancer knowledge after viewing the video, rendering posttest knowledge scores nearly equal between the groups. These findings indicate that this video is an effective strategy for increasing cervical cancer knowledge among deaf women.
