Dissertation note: Ph.D., University of Texas at Tyler, 2017. Summary: A mixed methods study was conducted whereby, the quantitative portion has a randomized control design, in an urban Delaware community to examine the effectiveness of an educational intervention, which included the testimony of an African American (AA) prostate cancer survivor on AA men’s (n=98) prostate cancer knowledge and self-efficacy for informed decision making. Guided by Bandura’s Social Cognitive theory, participants’ prostate cancer knowledge measured by PROCASE and for self-efficacy measured by the Prostate Cancer Screening Self-efficacy scale, were evaluated before and following viewing of the American Cancer Society’s prostate cancer video. Participants randomized to the intervention completed evaluations after the intervention. A sample (n=10) from each group participated in their respective focus groups. A control focus group (those who neither watched video or heard speaker) was also evaluated. The MANCOVA, using Pillai’s trace, demonstrated a significant effect of the intervention on knowledge and self-efficacy posttest scores, (V= .28, F6,82 = 4.937, p= .000). Combining a prostate cancer survivor’s testimonial with an educational video increases knowledge and self-efficacy among AA men in this urban community.
