Exploration of Women-centred in the context Cervical Cancer Ethnocultural Groups- summaryJoan L. Bottorff, Lynda G. Balneaves, Lorna Sent, Suki Grewal and Annette J. Browne, 2000

Underutilization of mainstream health services has led to the development of specialized health services for women from different ethnocultural groups. These services provide an important focus for the study of women-centred care.

A further aim of the study was to determine factors that influenced full implementation of women-centred care within these clinics.
