In October’s conversation in Obstetrics and Gynecology we chat with Professor Ian Hammond, a Gynaecologic Oncologist from Perth about the renewed cervical screening program in Australia. With implementation of the guidelines commencing in December 2017, it's a great time to brush up on the evidence behind the new recommendations. Journal club looks at three articles along the same theme.
Small, William, et al. "Cervical cancer: A global health crisis." Cancer (2017).
Velentzis, L. S., et al. "How will transitioning from cytology to HPV testing change the balance between the benefits and harms of cervical cancer screening? Estimates of the impact on cervical cancer, treatment rates and adverse obstetric outcomes in Australia, a high vaccination coverage country." International journal of cancer (2017).
