We examined which demographic and psychosocial factors were associated with healthcare empowerment (HCE) and decisional self-efficacy (DSE) among African-American (AA) men.


African-American men (N = 76), who never received a prostate cancer screening or it was over one year since their last screening, completed in-person questionnaires about HCE, DSE, and prostate cancer screening.


Multiple regression models predicted that the frequency of social and emotional support was a statistically significant predictor of HCE. There were no significant results for DSE.


Social and emotional support may be influential on the AA male’s sense of HCE. The results provide a foundation for the development of interventions for AA men to increase utilization of the healthcare system.
