Breast cancer disparity in Non-Hispanic Black women is a major concern due to higher breast cancer death rates in this population. This integrative review explores interventions aimed at increasing screening mammography in this population. A literature search was conducted of full-text, peer-reviewed articles published over ten years between 2013-2023 using Cumulated Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature and PubMed. Of the 396 articles identified, nine met the inclusion criteria. The studies identified used various strategies to implement screening interventions in Non-Hispanic Black women that were culturally tailored and considered social determinants of health, barriers to breast cancer screening, engaging community, and patient navigation. These findings suggest that focused interventions should consider the challenges to Non-Hispanic Black women to schedule and complete mammogram screenings. Future research is recommended to conduct interventional studies with Non-Hispanic Black women specifically tailored to meet their needs to promote engagement in the recommended mammography screening guidelines.
