Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The public health impact of population-based mammography screening programs depends on high participation rates. Thus, monitoring participation rates, as well as understanding and considering the factors influencing attendance, is important. With the goal to acquire information on the appropriate level of intervention for increasing screening participation our study aimed to (1) examine whether, over and above individual factors, the neighborhood of residence influences a woman's mammography non-attendance, and (2) evaluate, whether knowing a woman's neighborhood of residence would be sufficient to predict non-attendance.
