This previously-aired broadcast provides a brief overview of the newest HPV screening recommendations and answers the audience’s pressing questions.

Time to complete: 30 minutes

  • Overview

    The Cervical Cancer Screening practice environment continues to change for both physicians and patients. Physicians are constantly tasked with evaluating analyses of new data on how best to approach cervical cancer screening for a particular patient demographic; and patients remain confused and unsure if the “new” approaches are better, or even less safe, than the “Pap” that has served as the bedrock for so many years.

    This activity previously aired as a ReachMD Live Broadcast, where Dr. Thomas Wright, Jr., addressed these wide-ranging issues in a real-time, question and answer forum.
