The Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS), a nationally representative data set, was analyzed to investigate the influence of perceived patient-centeredness, physician recommendation of mammograms, and race on adherence to mammogram recommendations. Data from African American, European American, Hispanic, and other female ethnic/racial groups (N = 2179) revealed that a recommendation from a physician to obtain a mammogram was a significant predictor of mammogram behavior (OR = 6.67), while patient-centeredness was not predictive of adherence to mammogram recommendations. Additionally, Latinas reported higher perceptions of patient-centeredness than African Americans and European Americans. Implications are discussed, along with recommendations for future research.
