Formatted abstract
Assessed the capacity of modeling videotapes to promote Pap smear screening. 245 16–54 yr old women watched videotapes modeling the process of Pap smear testing and completed pre- and post-intervention questionnaires that assessed knowledge and attitudes relating to Pap smears and cervical cancer. 186 of the Ss completed follow-up questionnaires 5 wks later. One third of Ss identified as due for a Pap smear reported having had the test by follow-up. Initial levels of knowledge of Pap smears and of risk factors for cervical cancer were low but increased significantly at posttest and follow-up. Health-Belief-Model variables, particularly perceived barriers, were associated with reported Pap smear behavior, but a large proportion of the variance remained unexplained.
