From: Understanding low chemoprevention uptake by women at high risk of breast cancer: findings from a qualitative inductive study of women’s risk-reduction experiences

  Aware of chemoprevention Unaware of chemoprevention Totala
Reports nuanced information gatheringb 13 (62%) 8 (38%) 21 (45%)
Does not report nuanced information gatheringb 8 (31%) 18 (69%) 26 (55%)
Low cancer worryb 6 (25%) 18 (75%) 24 (51%)
Moderate or high cancer worryb 15 (65%) 8 (35%) 23 (49%)
  1. All categories coded inductively from qualitative data. For example, a woman was coded as “reports nuanced information gathering” if she discussed any of these strategies during her interview: trying to be informed enough to ask the right questions, trying to validate information, being aware of information-seeking gaps, having encountered challenges to gathering needed information
  2. aNumbers in this column are row totals. Percentages are out of the sample of 47 participants analyzed in this paper
  3. bPercentages on this row refer to the percent of the row total that falls in this column (e.g. 25% of those with low cancer worry are aware of chemoprevention)
