Abstract

Self-efficacy has become an important variable in multiple areas of human performance, including health behavior modification (Bandura, 1997). This study explores variables that lead to women's perceived self-efficacy in performing regular detection practices for breast and cervical cancer. A sample of southeastern U.S. farm women (N = 206) completed surveys that assessedtheir perceived and actual knowledge of women's cancer detection practices, as well as their perceived social norms and perceived barriers related toobtaining these tests. Regression analyses of these data revealed that perceived peer norms and the barriers of time and embarrassment were significant predictors of women's confidence in their ability to follow through withcancer detection practices. Perceived knowledge and perceived family normssignificantly predicted women's perceptions of difficulty associated with cancer detection practices as well as women's confidence in their skills toPerform breast self-examination (BSE). Time was also a significant barrierto confidence in performing BSE. Implications for health communication campaigns are discussed.
