"The purpose of this analysis was to assess sociodemographic factors associated with fears and mistrust as related to the patient-provider relationship that may contribute to unwillingness to participate in cancer screenings," they wrote. "Our results indicate that racial, ethnic and educational discrepancies exist regarding fears and mistrust. Results also indicate areas where health professionals can improve interactions with patients, particularly among Hispanics and those with lower educational attainment."

The researchers added that communication can be especially difficult where there are language barriers, yet improving patient-provider communication "holds tremendous promise because it offers one of the more readily changeable contributors to cancer screening adherence."

The survey included responses from 355 blacks in New York and Baltimore, 311 Hispanics in San Juan and New York, and 482 whites in New York and Baltimore. They cities were chosen, said the authors, to ensure a wide geographic and racial/ethnic representation. The participants were 18 to 94 with incomes between less than $20,000 to more than $75,000 per year. Almost 40 percent has some or completed their high school education. College graduates or those with "some college" accounted for 46 percent of respondents.

The authors noted that their survey did not take into account respondents' health insurance status or the race or ethnicity of the respondent's health care provider.
