Health Insurance and Public Policy: Risk, Allocation, and Equity

By Miriam K. Mills; Robert H. Blank | Go to book overview

breast cancer, that it can be treated, and that there is life after breast cancer is one important part of the message. It is also important to pay attention to the interpersonal feelings that the possibility of breast cancer arouses, especially in relation to significant others, where it is easier to deny that one will get the disease than to contemplate the perceived disaster it would create in a woman's social life. Policies that are sensitive to age and culture that will enable and encourage older Anglo and Hispanic women to get screening for breast cancer are needed in order to break down the barriers of myth, silence, and resignation that surround this disease, and to encourage resilience and resourcefulness as acceptable responses to the challenge of conquering breast cancer.


NOTES
1.
The authors recognize that the term "Hispanic" is an artificial construction, embracing many different people of Spanish, Latin American, and Caribbean origin.
2.
The respondent was asked how she identified herself, and read a list of predefined choices. In a few cases the respondent's self-classification did not appear to be consistent with observations made by the interviewer; however, in all cases the respondent's selection was respected.
