Results: the educational intervention associated to the brief motivational interview promoted an increase in the adequacy of knowledge (p=0.001) and attitude (p=0.007). Conclusion: the educational intervention was able to increase the percentage of adequacy of the knowledge and the attitude of women in relation to the early detection of breast cancer.
