The renewed NCSP also introduced HPV self-collection to help engage underscreened women and people with a cervix to participate in cervical screening.
HPV self-collection is equally as sensitive as a clinician-collected test and highly acceptable amongst women and people with a cervix.It is the key to eliminating cervical cancer in Australia by 2030.
With primary care playing a critical role in increasing screening participation rates, this course will provide General Practitioners, Nurse Cervical Screening Providers and Practice Nurses across Australia with information about the natural progression of cervical disease, the rationale for using the HPV test as the primary screening test, and the recent changes to the NCSP clinical guidelines.
This course has a strong focus on HPV self-collection, presenting the latest emerging evidence and the current self-collection policy, eligibility criteria, and screening pathway.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have the knowledge and skills to offer HPV self-collection to eligible patients, as well as understanding the accuracy and reliability of HPV self-collection as a primary cervical screening test and appropriate follow-up and management practices.
