The proposed pilot study is part of the design and development process of a final questionnaire that aims to gain insight on factors that influences acceptance and adoption of breast cancer risk assessment in women. Feedback on the questionnaire will help identify potential issues of clarity, comprehensibility, and reliability; and to identify possible biases that often accompany a designed questionnaire. Information gained from the large-scale study will provide directions for the development of educational strategies in the TIBS research program that could accompany increases in public awareness of risk factors, the availability of risk assessment tools and preventive lifestyle.
