Purpose: The aim of the research is to examine the effects of simulation-based breast health education on breast cancer awareness and breast self-examination practices of Afghan refugee women.
Methods: The study will conduct with 64 (32 in the intervention group, and 32 in the control group) Afghan. The study population consisted of Afghan women. The simulation-based breast health education will applied to the intervention group once a week for 8 weeks.
No intervention will offer to the control group. Data will collected by a socio-demographic questionnaire, Breast Cancer Awareness Measure (BCAM) and breast self-examination practices checklist.

Experimental: Experimental group
Simulation-based breast health education
Behavioral: simulation-based breast health education
The intervention group will receive simulation-based breast health education once a week for eight weeks. The simulation- based breast health education program will compose two part. The first part, it will theoretical education and second part will continue as practical education. On the plan date, a 60-min lecture will give about breast cancer, its risk factors, interventions to reduce the risk of breast cancer, the value of early diagnosis and cancer screening. After a 10-min break, course attendees watched a 20-min video, after which the course attendees' questions will answer.
No Intervention: Control group
The control group will not take part the simulation-based breast health education
- The Breast Cancer Awareness Measure (BCAM) Score [ Time Frame: up to 8 weeks ]BCAM was developed by the Cancer Research UK group of Kings College London in 2009. BCAM is a questionnaire that assesses seven domains of BC awareness: knowledge of BC symptoms, breast self-examination, confidence of noticing a change in the breasts, age and lifetime risk of BC, urgency if a change in breast is noticed, BC risk factors, and BC screening. The questionnaire can be administered face-to-face or via telephone.26 BCAM is highly readable for patients, has good test-retest reliability, good construct validity, and is sensitive to changes in awareness. BCAM has been validated in Muslim and Middle Eastern populations. For the present study, Dari version of BCAM which was translated from English into Dari by an official translator, and participant responses were translated back to English from previous study that published in LANCET.
