Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumor among women in the world and constitutes almost 25% of cancer types found in women. This study was initiated to investigate the effect of video training given to women who applied to Bursa İlker Çelikcan Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Hospital on an outpatient basis or who received inpatient treatment in the hospital on the self-examination breastfeeding model and the application levels of breast screening methods. 74 women who participated in the study voluntarily were included. Participants were randomly selected and divided into two as control and experimental groups, and the data were collected using the "Patient Presentation Form", "Champion's Breast Cancer Screening Health Belief Scale" by applying pre-test and post-test. The data were evaluated in SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) package program with descriptive analysis. For the research, verbal permission from the participants and written permission from the institution was obtained. After the training in the experimental and control groups, “Self Breast Examination” (BSE) was also increased regularly, and this increase was found statistically significant in the experimental group (p = 0.028 <0.05), the increase in the rate of BSE in the experimental group statistically significant (p = 0.000 <0.05), the increase in the control group was not significant. In both groups, the perception of benefits and self-efficacy scores, which are the sub-dimensions of the Champion Health Belief Model Scale, were found to be statistically higher and the disability scores were lower than the post-training scores. The increase in self-efficacy and utility points in the experimental group increased significantly compared to the control group. It has been shown that following the video training in women included in the research, follow-up positively contributed to the health beliefs related to breast cancer and to perform breast self-examination regularly.
