Welcome to Cervix Visual Assessment Guide and Recognizing the Suspicious Cervix course.
Colposcopy services have reported an increase in the referral rate based on "Suspicious Cervix".
Inappropriate colposcopy referrals lead to overload of the colposcopy service, extended appointment waiting times and distress to those being referred.
Smeartakers should be familiar with the appearance of normal anomalies. After clearly visualising the cervix, an assessment as to whether a cause for concern can be made.
This course will help you to differentiate between normal anomalies and suspicious cervix.
The aim of this programme is to provide instruction and information on how CervicalCheck works in practice and the role that Primary Care have in the prevention of cervical cancer.
It provides informational video segments that demonstrate best practice in cervical screening including counselling women, performing the screening test, and recordkeeping. This knowledge will equip the learner to help and support CervicalCheck achieve their goal of reducing the incidence of and the mortality from cervical cancer.
You can find direct links to all relevant CervicalCheck resources and documentation in one, easy-to-access place at the end of the programme.
