Abstract

Objectives:
To explore how culture may play a part in breast cancer screening, early detection, and efforts to decrease breast mortality.
Data Sources:
Journal articles published in the past 20 years on cultural aspects of cancer prevention and control.
Conclusions:
Research seems directed more at discovering cultural differences than at identifying similarities on how culture influences breast cancer screening and early detection. The influences of poverty and lack of educational opportunities account for much of what is termed cultural difference.
Implications for Nursing Practice:
Improving practice through an informed understanding of culture calls for considerable self-education and a fundamental refinement of care delivery.
