Inadequate Communication Reduces Benefits of Mammogram Screening for Black Women

Black women may not get the full benefits of mammogram screenings because the results are not adequately communicated, according to a new study by //Yale Public Health researchers in the March issue of American Journal of Public Health.

To help reduce death and disability from breast cancer, the second most common cause of cancer death in American women, current guidelines recommend routine mammography screening for women aged 40 years and older.

Jones and colleagues compared self-reported mammogram results, collected by telephone interview, to results listed in the radiology record of 411 black women and 734 white women aged 40 to 79 who underwent screening in five hospital-based facilities in Connecticut. They examined whether black women were as likely as white women to self-report results that matched the mammography radiology report. A second objective was to determine how the results of a screening mammogram affected the communication of those results.

Mammogram screening results were inadequately communicated to or understood by 14.5 percent of all women in the study. Of these, 12.5 percent reported they had not received their screening results, while the other 2.5 percent inaccurately reported their results. Black women were significantly more likely than white women to report never receiving their mammography results and/or to rep
