Providers who care for women should be aware of the most recent changes to cervical cancer screening guidelines. It is not difficult to determine the plan for screening if the provider is aware of the management algorithm. However, if a clinician is not routinely doing women’s health care the changes can be confusing, and the module will enable the provider to be confident in their plan of care for cervical cancer screening and abnormality management. The changes can be very confusing and concerning for patients who are unaware, and this module can help the clinician to educate their patients regarding the updates.
