Abstract

Objective: Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related mortality in women after lung cancer in the World. Early diagnosis and treatment is life-saving. Our aim with this study is to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of breast cancer awareness of health care professionals and patients who apply to our Family Medicine Policlinic in Eskisehir.

Methods: A total of 424 female patients were included in the study. "Evaluation of the Knowledge, Attitudes and Behaviors of Breast Health of Patients and Healthcare Personnels Attending to the Family Physician Policlinic Form" which was prepared by the researchers was applied with a face-to-face interview method.

Results: A total of 424 female patients were included in the study, 178 of them were health professionals. The average age was 40.2 ± 11.1 years. 54.1% (n= 153) of 283 patients who performed BSE were health care personnels and health care personnels’ performances of BSE were found to be statistically higher than non-health care personnels. 47.9% (n= 203) of participants in study are over 40 years of age and 66.5% (n= 135) of them are screened by mammogram, 33.5% (n= 68 ) of them did not have a mammogram. There was no significant difference about screened by mammography between health care personnels and non-health care personnels.

Conclusion: While attending preventive health services, they should have positive attitudes towards developing health for health care personnel, which is also an example of cancer screenings.

Abstract


Amaç: Meme kanseri, akciğer kanserinden sonra kadınlarda kansere bağlı mortalitenin en yaygın ikinci nedenidir. Erken tanı ve tedavi hayat kurtarıcıdır. Bu çalışmanın amacı, Eskişehir'de Aile Hekimliği Polikliniğimize başvuran hasta ve sağlık çalışanlarının meme kanseri hakkındaki bilgi, tutum ve davranışlarını değerlendirmektir.

Gereç ve Yöntem: Çalışmaya toplam 424 kadın hasta alındı. Araştırmacılar tarafından hazırlanan “Aile Hekimliği Polikliniğine Başvuran Hasta Ve Sağlık Çalışanlarının Meme Sağlığı Hakkında Bilgi, Tutum Ve Davranışlarının Değerlendirilmesi” anket formu yüz yüze görüşme yöntemiyle uygulanmıştır.

Bulgular: Çalışmamıza 424 kadın hasta dâhil edilmiştir. Bu hastaların 178 i sağlık çalışanı olan katılımcılardı. Katılımcıların yaş ortalamaları 40.2±11.1 yıldır. BSE uygulayan 283 hastanın% 54.1'i (n= 153) sağlık personeli ve sağlık personelinin BSE performansının sağlık çalışanlarına göre istatistiksel olarak daha yüksek olduğu bulunmuştur. Çalışmaya katılanların% 47.9'u (n= 203) 40 yaşın üzerindedir ve bunların% 66.5'i (n= 135) mamografiyle tarandığını belirtmiştir ,% 33.5'i (n= 68) mamografi taramasına sahip değildi. Sağlık personeli ve sağlık personeli olmayan kişiler arasında mamografi yaptırma ile ilgili anlamlı bir fark yoktu.

Sonuç: Sağlık çalışanlarının koruyucu sağlık hizmetlerini yerine getirirken, aynı zamanda kanser taramaları konusunda da örnek olunacak tutumlarda bulunmaları hiç şüphesiz sağlığın geliştirilmesinde olumlu etkilere sahip olacaktır.
