KISS: New National Cervical Screening Program

18 March 2019 - Dr Chandelle Whitfield
In December 2017 a renewed National Cervical Screening Program was launched in Australia.

A more sensitive five yearly Cervical Screening (HPV DNA) test replaced the Pap (cervical cytology) test.  This was an evidence-based change and is expected to further reduce the incidence of and mortality from cervical cancer in Australian women.  This KISS covers the changes to the program, the new cervical screening test, who should be tested and how, how to interpret results and how to transition from the old program.
