“Studies in Cervical Cancer Screening and Prevention with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”
APRIL GREEK, PhD
Principle Research Scientist
J. ELIZABETH JACKSON, PhD
Battelle Memorial Institute in Seattle has led several projects for CDC oriented toward improving cervical cancer prevention efforts. First we will report on a recent project conducted in Federally Qualified Health Centers in Illinois that (1) examined patient and provider knowledge, beliefs and behaviors regarding cervical cancer screening, and (2) evaluated the effectiveness of an academic detailing intervention to increase evidence based cervical cancer screening with the HPV and Pap co-test. Second we will describe the goals and early activities of a new 5-year retrospective study of cervical cancer survivors. In this study, Battelle is partnering with three state-based central cancer registries to identify women who were diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer in 2014-2016. Patient surveys and medical chart reviews will examine factors related to primary screening and treatment of cervical neoplasia prior to invasion.
