Effect of an educational film on the Health Belief Model and breast self-examination practice

Findings showed that the health belief parameters [perceived susceptibility to breast cancer, benefits of and barriers to practising breast self-examination] were influenced differently by the film.

The main reason cited for BSE practice was early detection of abnormalities
