Factors Influencing Breast Cancer Awareness in Ras Al Khaimah: Development & Implementation of a Public Awareness Campaign

This Majlis will discuss the individual, community, and organisational factors that either encourage or inhibit women’s use of breast screening services and women’s health services in Ras Al Khaimah. It presents findings from three studies on breast cancer services in Ras Al Khaimah, which were conducted by the University of Sydney with RAK Medical and Health Sciences University and RAK Hospital.

The studies explored women’s beliefs and attitudes towards breast cancer screening, nurses training and knowledge around breast cancer and breast examinations, the role of organisations in encouraging women to participate in breast cancer screening, and breast cancer awareness campaigns.
