(BPT) – To protect yourself from developing cervical cancer, you need to know how Pap and HPV tests can work together to assess your risk, as well as how often to get tested since the greatest risk is not getting screened. A newly released survey, Cervical Cancer Today: A National Survey of Attitudes and Behaviors, paints a picture of women and their healthcare providers as resistant to changes in one of the most successful cancer prevention programs in U.S. history: cervical cancer screening. The survey, conducted jointly by the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) and HealthyWomen (HW), explored the attitudes and decisions in the exam room of more than 2,000 women and 750 healthcare providers nationwide.
