NATIONAL CERVICAL CANCER AWARENESS WEEK  PARTICIPANT E-KIT

Thank you very much for your commitment to host a Pap test clinic during this year’s National Cervical Cancer Awareness Week taking place October 15-19, 2018.   This year's theme is reaching under-screened and never-screened women, and we encourage you to ask women who are accompanying children and elders if they've been screened, check their charts, and make an appointment.

Here are a few items to help you prepare for and promote the Pap test clinic(s) to be offered in your community:

 

KEY MESSAGES

  • A Pap test is a screening test to prevent cervical cancer.
  • Pap tests should be done every 3 years or as recommended by provincial or territorial guidelines.

  • We can vaccinate against HPV.
  • Discuss vaccination with your physician or nurse practitioner.
  • Take advantage of school-based immunization programs for tweens and teens.
