“e-CHEC-uP: Scaling up an Efficacious Cancer Screening Intervention for Women With Limited English”
This research is being done to learn more about whether or not Korean American women will improve the screening practices for breast and cervical cancer if subjects receive education and follow-up from community health workers. The education materials may be given via online or in-person. Primary Hypothesis: e-CHEC-uP will be as efficacious as the original CHEC-uP in promoting mammogram and Pap test screening among Korean immigrant women (KIW) at 6 months. Objectives: (1) To develop a web-based platform of the health literacy education component of the original CHEC-uP intervention; (2) To evaluate the acceptability and usability of the web version of the health literacy education in a user testing sample of 10 KIW; and (3) To conduct a pilot study to test the preliminary efficacy of the web version of CHEC-uP (e-CHEC-uP) in 40 KIW.
