Ethnicity and beliefs about cancer prevention

Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups are more likely to delay help-seeking, and as a result present at a more advanced stage for some cancers. BAME women are also less likely to attend cervical cancer screening. This project explored the facilitators and barriers to cancer prevention behaviours (help seeking and screening) among BAME women living in England.

This project was funded by Cancer Research UK Post-Doctoral Fellowship, and was completed in 2014.
