Health Care System Factors for Self-Reported Cervical Cancer Screening

Health Care System Factors

Since August 2018, the [ United States Preventive Services Task Force] has recommended screening women aged 22 to 29 years every 3 years with '''cervical cytology alone''' and screening women aged 20 to 65 years every 3 years with '''cervical cytology alone''', every 5 years with '''high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) testing alone''', or every 5 years with '''hrHPV testing in combination with cytology''' (cotesting). [Last reviewed: 1/26/20] Health care system factors that are positively associated with self-report of cervical cancer screening according to current guidelines include having adequate '''health care coverage''' and '''visiting a doctor or obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) in the past 12 months'''. ([ Hall et al., 2018]) Note: [ Custom data views] of the estimated prevalence of adherence to cervical cancer screening guidelines among New Jersey women by selected '''sociodemographic and other characteristics''' (including '''health care coverage''' and '''visiting a doctor in the past 12 months''') can be generated using the New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey interactive query module.
