Abstract

This Research and Development aimed to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of an Innovative Artificial Breast for teaching women in Breast self-examination (BSE). The research methodology covered three phases. Phase 1: Study of the current state and need to use  innovations for teaching BSE; there are 2 steps: 1) Study and use of innovation 2) Reviewed evidence-based literature. Phase 2: Creating and developing 5 steps to Innovative Artificial Breast; step1: Defining the elements of innovative artificial breast; step 2: Drafting Innovative Artificial Breast model; step 3: Testing the model; step 4: Evaluating and improving prototype and step 5: Evaluating this Innovation by experts. Phase 3: Evaluating the effectiveness of the innovative artificial breast with 60 samples were tested with a quasi-experimental one group pre and post-test. Data were analysed by using descriptive statistics and test different average skills inspection and palpation before and after the teaching of the samples by using Pair t-test and Independent t-test.


The results showed that after using Innovative Artificial Breast model there were significant increasing skills of inspection and palpation (p < .05). Innovative Artificial Breast for Teaching Breast Self-Examination is effective and can be used for teaching women in Breast Self-Examination.


 


Note: Innovative Artificial Breast for teaching breast self-examination was registered for petty patents with the Department of Intellectual Property, the Ministry of Commerce, number 11633, 17 June 2016.
