An Integrated National Assessment of Cervical Cancer Prevention, Incidence and Survival for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women: A Data Linkage Study

 

Overview

This study aims to assess the effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention, incidence and survival for Indigenous women using data linkage of existing data sources including:

The National cervical screening program (which includes PTRs) provides data to monitor and evaluate cervical screening in Australia, but does not record Indigenous status. Consequently, no data on cervical screening for Indigenous women are available. This project aims to address this gap in knowledge. It will be the first national study of this kind.

The study will investigate cervical screening participation, abnormalities and outcomes for Indigenous women using national screening program performance indicators.
