Improving providers’ knowledge of cervical cancer, prevention and screening may help decrease the incidence
of cervical cancer. With education about the HPV vaccine, providers will be encouraged to provide the vaccine
in their practices.
Many disparities (geographic, race, and access) to screening services exist across New York
State. Improving and increasing early detection of cervical cancer can help reduce these disparities.
Intended Audience: Women’s health care providers and advocates including ob/gyns, family practice physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses and nurse midwives.
- Understand the evolution of cervical cytology screening as well as current evidence-based guidelines
- Gain knowledge about HPV, its relationship to cervical cancer, and indications for HPV testing and;
- Understand the HPV vaccine, including current recommendations for its use.
