The National Cervical Screening Program reduces illness and death from cervical cancer. Women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 74 years of age are invited to have a cervical screening test every 5 years.
Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for this program – the National Cervical Screening Program Guidelines – are available on the Cancer Council Australia website. They should be used to guide your decision making and help you follow best practice in managing screen-detected abnormalities, cervical screening and investigation of symptoms in your patients.
The National Cancer Screening Register enables a single electronic record for each person in Australia participating in cervical and bowel screening.
