Racial Disparities in Cervical Cancer Screening: Implications for Relieving Cervical Cancer Burden in Asian American Pacific Islander Women.

Cancer Nurs 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Author Affiliations: School of Social Work, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa (Dr Lee); and School of Social Work (Ms Beltran), Department of Educational Psychology (Mr Kim), and School of Medicine (Mr Lee), University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

Background: While cervical cancer is considered preventable and the overall Papanicolaou (Pap) test utilization rate has gradually increased in the United States, certain Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) women consistently rate lower in Pap test receipt compared with non-Latina whites (NLWs), leading to a higher cervical cancer mortality rate for various AAPI women. Few studies, however, have focused on female AAPI college students' cervical cancer screening behavior in comparison with NLW students.

Objective: This study aimed to investigate cervical cancer screening behaviors among college-aged females by (1) determining AAPIs' and NLWs' screening rates, (2) assessing their knowledge about Pap tests, and (3) discovering factors associated with Pap test receipt. Read More
