Cervical Screening Renewal – Clinician Attitudes and Practices following Implementation in NSW

Research status

In progress

Overview of Study

Since the renewal of the National Cervical Screening Program in December 2017 no formal evaluation has been undertaken of attitudes or practices of cervical screening clinicians following implementation.

In order for the renewed program to be a success, it will be important for clinicians to adopt the changes and incorporate the updated guidelines into their practice.

This study aims to determine, by way of a survey, current attitudes to, familiarity with, and practices of clinicians regarding the cervical screening renewal and the associated updated guidelines. It is anticipated that the survey will identify common issues and gaps in knowledge which will inform targeted education campaigns and resources, and support improved uptake of the guidelines.

(This research project has been approved by the Family Planning NSW Ethics Committee; approval number R2018-06)
