Abstract:   (253 Views)
Aims. to develop an android-based detection application for breast cancer risk assessment
Material and methods. This research adopted a research and development approach, employing a one-group pre-and-post-test design. The development and field testing phase transpired between July and August 2023, involving 59 purposively selected women of childbearing age within the operational vicinity of Puskesmas Simpang IV Sipin, Jambi City, Indonesia. The application successfully underwent testing, including assessment by media and material validators. Subsequently, a comprehension test was conducted with 3 respondents in a one-on-one setting, 10 individuals in a small group, and 59 participants in a large group. In the field test, data is presented descriptively, including frequencies. The Wilxocon test is employed to establish a causal relationship between the use of the product and the observed impact.
Results. The development of the breast cancer risk assessment application involved several key stages, including the Identification Stage (comprising Problem Analysis, Context, and Literature), Application Model Design Stage, and Material and Media Validation Stage. The media validation process conducted twice, with the findings yielding a score of 67, averaging 3.35 (meeting valid criteria), while material validation received an average score of 3.0 (also meeting valid criteria). A Wilcoxon test conducted on the knowledge variable revealed a significant increase, with the mean value before the intervention at 8.44 and post-intervention rising to 12.29.
Conclusion. Women of childbearing age can readily accept Android-based breast cancer risk detection applications, and their usage has a positive impact on increasing their knowledge.
