abstract

  • The results from this exploratory study support the need for further studies to document the pattern of adherence to radiotherapy in the rest of the country among this minority population. The results suggest that an intervention to improve information and adherence to radiation therapy may be necessary to assure Latinas a chance for rates of cure comparable with the national standards.
