## Training Programmes

Cervical Screening training has been identified as critical in the provision of a quality assured, organised and population-based screening programme to the women of Ireland. CervicalCheck has developed and delivers accredited training programmes for health professionals in line with the recommendations of the ‘Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Cervical Screening - Second Edition’ (2014). The training opportunities available are provided in partnership with the Irish College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Nursing Faculty), University College Cork and the National University of Ireland Galway. This training prospectus has been compiled as a useful resource for those interested in participating in cervical screening training for the academic year 2020-2021. Places on courses are limited therefore early application is advisable.

1. Complete the GP Trainee application form (also available from the Smeartaker Training Unit by contacting 061 406565/564 or emailing stu@cervicalcheck.ie)
2. Complete a theory session - GP Training Schemes will deliver the theory sessions and must certify the theory component has been completed with evidence of dates
3. Complete a clinical audit with a CervicalCheck Clinical Trainer

We hope that you will find a course suited to your learning needs.
