Evaluates the accessibility of the Québec based program, the Programme québecois de dépistage du cancer du sein (PQDCS) in Montréal for women with diverse disabilities, based on seven criteria of Universal Accessibility, which includes: equitable use; flexibility in use; simple and intuitive; use perceptible information; tolerance for error; low physical effort; and, size and space for approach and use. Presents experiences of the environmental barriers and/or facilitators at the centres studied in hope that this aids women with disabilities to choose centres which best suit their needs.
