Breast Cancer Barriers and Facilitators Among Islamic/Muslim Refugee Women  in Canada: A Mixed Method Study

The proposed project will assess knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors associated with breast cancer self-examination, breast awareness, and the use of early screening programs among Islamic/Muslim women in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. This project will contribute to a better knowledge of the perceived susceptibility, perceptions of risks, barriers to and benefits of screening practices, confidence in performing Breast Self-Examination (BSE) and motivation in doing BSE among Islamic/Muslim immigrant and refugee women who recently migrated to Canada due to Syrian and Middle-East conflicts.
