Abstract

A STUDY OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF BREAST SELF-EXAMINATION INTERVENTION PROGRAMS AMONG UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Yueh-Chin Chung, Ph. D*

ABSTRACT

Background: Breast cancer is the cancer with the highest incidence among women in my country. Students can use this system to observe the stage changes of virtual human breast cancer, so as to encourage them to conduct regular breast self-examination and early detection and early treatment. The purpose of this study is mainly to integrate the "YOU VR Virtual Reality Teaching Human Structure Learning System" education course to assist college students in performing breast self-examination learning effects. Purpose: A total of 60 male and female students in the third grade of the nursing department of the university were the research objects. The quasi-experimental design was designed, and the experimental group and the control group were randomly assigned. The contents of the questionnaire included personal attributes, breast self-examination knowledge, and breast self-examination skills. Perform analysis, including percentage, mean, t-test, correlation. Results: There are 60 people in the whole study sample, 50 are women (83.3%), 5 people (8.3%) have relatives suffering from breast cancer, 34 people (68%) have regular menstruation, and 34 people (68%) have attended breast self-examination health education courses. 38 people (46.7%), 8 people (13.3%) have regular breast self-examination,he experimental group had an average score of 0.83 (SD=0.11) in the pre-test of breast self-examination knowledge, and an average score of 0.84 (SD=0.09) in the post-test of breast self-examination knowledge. The average score of the control group was 0.79 (SD=0.09 ), the posttest average score was 0.83 (SD=0.07). The same results were compared before and after the breast self-examination knowledge in the experimental group. Breast cancer was the second most common cancer in Taiwanese women since 2001 (0.50 vs 0.97; t = -4.48; p <0.000); Taiwanese women are the second most likely to develop cancer (0.07 vs 0.97; t = -16.16; p <0.000), which is significantly higher in "posttest" than "pretest". The average score of breast self-examination techniques in the experimental group and the control group (17.10 vs 13.17) (total score 18).In the experimental group, the total comparison of breast self-examination knowledge before and after the test (0.79 vs 0.83; t = -2.39; p <0.05), the "post test" is significantly higher than the "pre test". In the control group, the "posttest" was significantly higher than the "pretest". Indicating that intervention activities are still effective, The VR education training in the experimental group was more effective than the traditional breast self-examination course intervention activities in the control group. The correlation between the "breast self-examination knowledge experimental group posttest" and the "breast self-examination technique score experimental group posttest" facets was highly positively correlated (r =.84, p<0.05); ” and “Breast Self-examination Technique Score Control Posttest” facet showed moderate positive correlation (r =.72 , p<0.05). There was a moderate positive correlation between the facets of "Breast self-examination technique score control group pre-test" and "Breast self-examination knowledge control group pre-test" (r =.75, p<0.05). Conclusion: In this study, through the integration of innovative teaching of virtual reality, breast self-examination knowledge and self-examination technology scores are positively correlated. If it can enhance the awareness of breast self-examination of college students and perform correct breast self-examination techniques regularly, it can be used as a future campus promotion breast self-examination plan.
