The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between future time perspective (FTP) and frequency and quality of BSE performance. FTP relates to the way an individual views her own personal future, which may influence many aspects of her life, including behavior. Recent studies show FTP to positively relate to other health behaviors; The sample consisted of 153 young adult women from the Student Health Center of a large University who took an informational health class which included BSE instruction. A demographic questionnaire, Champion's Quality of BSE survey, and Heimberg's FTP Inventory were used to obtain data. A conceptual model was proposed to show the relationship of variables to FTP and BSE performance; The study showed a significant relationship exists between FTP and BSE frequency, but not quality, of performance. Stepwise multiple regression identified level of confidence in performing BSE as a strong variable for both BSE frequency and quality.
