From 1st December 2017, the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP) will change from 2-yearly cervical cytology testing to 5-yearly HPV testing for women aged 25-74 years. New guidelines will assist the implementation of the renewed NCSP, recently endorsed by RACGP as an accredited clinical guideline for general practice.
You play a key role in the prevention of cervical cancer. GPs are the largest provider of cervical screening services in Australia, and most cervical screening is conducted in general practices and community health settings.
This evidence-based, highly-interactive ALM provides necessary information and resources ensuring you and your practice team deliver the new program maintaining patient safety and a high quality cervical screening service. An interactive online predisposing and reinforcing activity will be made available to participants incorporating 10 case studies set in general practice, highlighting GP clinical decision-making with relevance to key management recommendations found in the new guidelines.
