Young, B., Bedford, L., Kendrick, D., Vedhara, K., Robertson, J. F. R., & das Nair, R. (2018). Factors influencing the decision to attend screening for cancer in the UK: a meta-ethnography of qualitative research. Journal of Public Health, 40(2), 315-339.
Cancer screening invitations and associated decision-making were examined in this review. Qualitative research was carefully gathered to understand why people in the UK choose to participate in cancer screenings. A meta-ethnographic approach was utilized to integrate the findings and derive more in-depth interpretations from the data that had been culled from other studies (Young et al., 2018). A total of thirty-four studies were eligible for review. Breast, cervical, colorectal, prostate, ovarian, and lung cancer screenings were among the topics covered. The synthesis uncovered three major themes. Decisions were impacted by relationships with the health service, which were influenced by trust, cooperation with power, resistance to control or monitoring, and the perception of failure to satisfy cultural, religious, and linguistic demands. Some people were motivated by the fear of cancer screening while others were hindered by it (Young et al., 2018). Moderately high levels of fear were reflected in the strategies employed. It was shown that screening was used as a coping mechanism, affected by illness beliefs and positive sentiments about one’s health and well-being, in “Experiences of Risk.” We may learn more about how people deal with anxiety and danger by examining the connection between providers and patients, according to the research (Young et al., 2018). Cancer screening can be made more effective and more widely adopted if this information is widely disseminated.
Meta-ethnography sheds light on the motivations behind participants’ decisions to attend screenings. The review uncovered three major themes. First, screening efforts were influenced by people’s connections with the health service. When it came to whether or not to go, fear was a major factor. Third, the data showed that people’s perceptions of danger were conveyed in various ways. Several additional elements also influenced these main topics. Rather than reviewing invitation materials and techniques alone, patient-oriented initiatives targeting views of the larger health care system can improve acceptance (Young et al., 2018). The identification of changeable psychological characteristics as targets for intervention might lead to a better understanding of the complex drivers of uptake. Participation in a cancer screening research experiment may be motivated by different factors than standard National Health Service (NHS) screening (Marques et al.,2020). As a result, a large majority of the papers included in this review focused on NHS screenings for breast and colorectal cancers. Study findings span a wide range of years (1994–2016), therefore they may not accurately represent screening practices in the United Kingdom now.
A thorough analysis of qualitative research has found crucial themes that impact the adoption of cancer screening. People’s perceptions and experiences of risk have a role in how they respond to a screening invitation. Nurse leaders now have easier access to this significant body of information. In order to reduce the high rates of cancer morbidity and death, nurses should make use of this information to strengthen patient interactions with health care providers. Three findings from the research should be reduced by their leadership abilities. In order to encourage informed uptake, good nursing leadership should place an emphasis on the provider-patient connection. Because of this, nurse leaders must use research findings to prototype treatments that foster a perception of customized care, increase trust in the health service, and avoid high levels of dread and perceived danger.
