Cancer is the leading cause of death for Southeast Asian refugee and immigrant women. Cambodian, Lao, and Vietnamese (hereafter referred to as SEAR/I) women have disproportionately high incidence rates of breast and cervical cancers. Breast cancer incidence increased significantly for all Asians from 1988 to 2013, but the largest increase was in SEAR/I women (APC=2.5, 95% CI 0.8, 4.2). Over the past two decades, SEAR/I women experienced significant increases in breast cancer incidence across age groups compared to other Asian and White women. Lao and Cambodian women are 2.5 times and Vietnamese women are 40% more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer than are White women. Despite evidence that regular screening through mammography and Pap testing reduces breast and cervical cancer mortality, SEAR/I women continue to have strikingly low rates of screening (75.4% for Pap tests and 64.1% for mammography), well below the Healthy People 2020 target of 93% and 81.1%, respectively. Drawing on successful tailored navigation interventions, the purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of a culturally-relevant, tailored navigation intervention delivered through bilingual and bicultural Community Health Advisors (CHAs) for intergenerational SEAR/I women (mother-daughter dyads). Ethnically matched CHAs will use the tested Tailored Intervention Messaging System (TIMS©) to educate and navigate participants from the community to health clinic to complete mammography and/or Pap testing.
Our specific aims are to:
AIM 1: Test the efficacy of tailored navigation intervention delivered by SEA community health advisors (CHA+TN) to increase age-appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening completion compared to an information and reminder only control among intergenerational SEAR/I dyads.
H1: The intervention group (CHA+TN) will have significantly higher age-appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening rates compared with the control group (information + reminder only).
AIM 2: Examine the underlying mechanisms (both mediating and moderating factors) associated with the intervention (CHA+TN) that influence breast and cervical cancer screening completion.
Exploratory AIM 3: Explore in greater detail the influence of intergenerational exchange of information between mothers and daughters related to breast and cervical cancer screening.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||540 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||
Intervention group- Tailored Navigation Delivered by Community Health Advisor (CHA+TN)
Control Group- Information and Reminder Only
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Southeast Asian Women's Health Project|
|Actual Study Start Date :||October 16, 2020|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||September 2023|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||September 2023|
Experimental: Intervention Group (Navigation)
Participants will be contacted by CHAs by phone one week after giving informed consent and completion of the baseline survey. CHAs will contact participants once a week for up to 10 weeks (a maximum of 10 attempts or until a clinic appointment is made, whichever comes first). Using the TIMS© message library, the CHAs will engage participants in conversations about breast and cervical cancer screening and navigate the participants to overcome any barriers to screening and motivate them to make a clinic appointment. Personal messages from mothers to daughters and vice versa and screening reminder notecards will be sent at 12-months (T3). At 18-months (T4), CHAs will follow-up with navigation group participants who reported completing a mammogram during the navigation process. Screening completion will be measured by self-report and confirmed via medical record check.

Placebo Comparator: Control Group (Information only)
Participants will be mailed an informational brochure on mammography and Pap testing one week after enrollment into the study. At 3-months post enrollment, CHAs will conduct a follow-up phone call with each participant to assess mammogram and/or Pap testing completion (primary outcomes). At 12-months (T3) post enrollment, CHAs will contact all control group participants by phone to confirm a scheduled appointment or screening completion. For those who completed a mammogram within the 12 months since enrollment, generic screening reminder notecards will be sent by mail. At 18-months (T4), CHAs will follow-up with those control group participants who reported scheduling a mammogram, Pap smear, or both at the 12-month (T3) time point.
