Öz:
Amaç: Bu çalışma, kadın sağlık çalışanlarının meme kanseri ile ilgili bilgi düzeyi, meme kanserine karşı tutum ve davranışlarını belirlemek amacıyla planlanmıştır. Böylece toplumda oluşturulmak istenen meme kanseri konusundaki bilincin öncelikle ne kadarının kadın sağlık çalışanlarında mevcut olduğu, hangi konularda eksikliklerin bulunduğu, tarama programlarına karşı tutum ve davranışların ne düzeyde olduğu ve bunları etkileyen faktörlerin neler olduğu tespit edilmeye çalışıldı. Gereç ve Yöntem: Çalışmaya 266 kadın sağlık çalışanı katıldı. Tüm katılımcılara yüz yüze görüşme yöntemi ile 29 soruluk, araştırmacılar tarafından hazırlanan bir anket uygulandı. Anket formu; sosyodemografik bilgileri ve meme kanseri bilgi, tutum ve davranışlarını belirlemeye yönelik sorulardan oluşuyordu. Her bir doğru cevaba bir puan verilirken, yanlış cevaplar puanlandırılmadı. Veriler SPSS version 22.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) ile analiz edildi.Bulgular: Yaş ortalaması 30,29 ± 0,55 yıl idi. Katılımcıların %47,7 (n=127)’sini hekimler, %48,1 (n=128)’ini hemşireler, %4,2 (n=11)’sini diğer sağlık personelleri oluşturmaktaydı. Çalışmaya katılan kadın sağlık çalışanlarının meme kanseri ile ilgili bilgi düzeyleri ile medeni durum, eğitim seviyesi ve yaş arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı fark bulundu. Tarama programlarına katılımı etkileyen faktörler ise medeni durum, eğitim seviyesi, yaş ve meslekte geçen süre idi. Katılımcıların meme kanseri hakkında bilgi düzeyleri yüksek saptanırken, tarama programlarına uyumları oldukça düşük olarak tespit edilmiştir. Sonuç: Yaptığımız çalışmada kadın sağlık çalışanlarının genel olarak meme kanseri hakkında bilgi düzeyleri yüksek iken tarama programlarına katılımları oldukça düşük olarak tespit edildi. Bu durum kadın sağlık çalışanlarının tarama programlarına katılımını arttırmak için çalışmaların olması gerektiğini göstermektedir.
