For the 1 week postintervention follow-up questionnaires, patients were asked about their history of breast cancer, treatment, risk of recurrence, and timing of recommended treatments. Patients were asked about cancer stage and nodal status, treatment received, recurrence risk, and treatment recommendations timing of mammogram and physical examination. We are limited by the lack of a randomized design and other potential confounders could have influenced our results, namely, patient frequency or pattern of reviewing wallet card, or changes in information provided by the oncologists. Two sites had difficulties with IPS implementation; however, corrective actions yielded improvement attaining fair to good implementation. Delivery of the information seems successful with use of both patient navigators and community health workers. Group comparisons between baseline and 1-week postintervention and 3-month follow-up were made using the unpooled z -test of proportions.
