Cervical Screening - telephone-based recall (2019) on BOOKDOWN
by Dr Buddini Ekanayake & Dr David Fong

Identifying eligible women who either have no recorded cervical screening or whose last recorded screening is very overdue (most recent result 45 months or older ‘Pap’ smear) for targeted telephone-based recall. Interpreters are used as required, and the particular potential benefit of telephone-based recall for women of refugee/asylum-seeker background is explored.
