Reducing cervical cancer risks

Reducing cervical cancer risks: a toolkit for a young woman

This project will develop an evidence-based decision tool for women aged 19-26, and evaluate its effect on Pap test consultation length, HPV knowledge, uptake of tests and vaccine and provider communication. The tool will be delivered online /prior /to the consultation, and will be a one-stop source of information for cervical cancer prevention. The preparation of patients before the consultation is an important model that will be tested in this study and could be transferable to other aspects of general practice.
