Objective: The present study provides information on factors related to cervical cancer screening among a sample of Lumbee women. Methods: Data for the study were obtained as part of a larger project to increase participation of American Indian women in cervical screening. In-person pre-intervention interviews were conducted with 378 women selected to receive the educational program. Results: The results of the analysis of psychosocial factors associated with recent cervical screening suggested that the cumulative impact of several predisposing factors is most predictive of screening. Conclusion: Educational programs for cervical screening will be most effective if they address a variety of psychosocial factors identified through preliminary assessment of the target population.
