Training workshop for cervical cancer screening program coordinators and evaluators on quality assurance in cervical cancer screening (included with congress registration)
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019
S. Lönnberg (Finland), N. Segnan (Italy)
Screening and prevention of cervical cancer is undergoing major changes with the deployment of new screening methods and immunization programmes. However, screening coverage remains an important determinant for the success of population-based cancer prevention efforts. Many programmes still struggle with suboptimal attendance or adherence to the guidelines. This workshop aims to assess the recommendations from the current European guidelines and explore available strategies to improve screening coverage among hard to reach of women, discuss barriers to implementation of the quality assured screening strategies and look for possible solutions.
