Description

These guidelines are designed to give medical practitioners evidence-based recommendations to better manage patients who have an abnormal pap smear and through the planned implementation and education programs, raise women's awareness of the usefulness of pap smears as a tool in preventing deaths from cervical cancer.

The guideline addresses the current state of cervical cancer in Australia, the natural history of the disease and terminology for cervical cytology, management of squamous abnormalities, glandular abnormalities and special clinical circumstances, and psychosocial, economic and implementation issues.
