  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to understand primary care provider's knowledge, attitudes, and barriers to promoting evidence-based cancer screening and prevention practices for physicians with large Latino patient populations. The investigators will ask providers information on cancer screening and prevention practices by conducting one-on-one interviews. In addition, they would like to develop a committee of community providers to help design and implement cancer screening and prevention programs specifically for Latino patients based on the interview findings.

    of community-based primary care providers serving large Latino patient populations toward implementing evidence-based practices for cancer screening and prevention.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • build the beginning of a Community-Based Participatory Committee [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    and determine the feasibility of a network of community primary care providers serving large Latino patient populations with the purpose of disseminating, implementing and evaluating evidence-based practice for cancer screening and prevention.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Primary Care Providers
Conduct and analyze in-depth, semi-structured interviews with community-based primary care providers serving large Latino populations and Form a community-based participatory committee.
Behavioral: in-depth, semi-structured interviews
In-depth interviews will be conducted by the Principle Investigator and will use a combination of open-ended and closed, fixed response questions. Interviews will be audio recorded if the participant agrees, and answers to fixed response questions will be marked for complete analysis. The data collection portion of the study is estimated to take approximately 8 months. Areas to be addressed in the open-ended portion of the interview include: 1) Knowledge, attitudes and beliefs toward evidence-based cancer screening and prevention approaches 2) Barriers to implementing evidence-based cancer screening practices in the individual provider's clinical setting 3) Preferences for mechanisms of information dissemination and implementation and 4) Ideas and methods to facilitate evidence-based practices to improve cancer screening in the Latino population. A community-based participatory committee (CBPC) will be formed with 5-7 key informants identified during the interview process.
