GCPHN is offering 10 general practice teams the opportunity to participate in a Cervical Screening Self-collection Project.
Did you know in Queensland, around 200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year? Regular cervical screening is crucial for protection against cervical cancer and over 70% of cervical cancers occur in people who have never screened or lapsed in their screening.
Enhancements to the National Cancer Screening Program now include self-collection as an option, making screening more accessible. Self-collection is accurate, safe, and culturally appropriate, encouraging those who have never screened or stopped screening to participate.
