Background and Objective: All women at any ages are at risk of breast cancer and the risk will increase by aging. Rapid diagnosis of breast cancer and prompt treatment will survive the patients. There are definite documents that indicate breast self-examination is an effective method for prevention of death, but many women do not perform it regularly based on recommended screening programs. This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of Educational program based on BASNEF model on breast self- examination practice in women of Sirjan city.

Materials and Methods: This was a Training Trial Study. Two hundred 20-40-year-old women attending health centers in Sirjan city, were selected to participate in this study (100 in intervention group and 100 in control group). The intervention was conducted over three sessions in 60 minutes. Data were collected by a validated and reliable questionnaire about BASNEF model (38 questions) and also a checklist about Practice before intervention and three months after intervention. Data was analyzed by chi-square, fisher's exact, paired t-, independent t- and mcnemar tests.

Results: The mean±SD age of participants in the intervention and control groups were respectively  35.86±2.53 and 36.12±2.24 . After intervention, knowledge scores significantly increased in both intervention and control groups. Attitude, subjective norms and enabling factors significantly increased in the intervention group compared to the control group (p<0.001). In contrast, there was no increase or significant difference in the control group. Also the scores of Practice significantly increased in the intervention group compared to the control group (p<0.001).

Conclusion: BASNEF model was effective in educating the breast self- examination in20-45-years-old women. Therefore, it is proposed to apply traditional training methods along with the BASNEF model in training Women.
