Advanced Colposcopy 
Case-Based Course

Is this Educational Activity Right for Me?

This course discusses the “2012 Updated Consensus Guidelines for the Management of Women with Abnormal Cervical Cancer Screening Tests and Cancer Precursors” developed by ASCCP and experts representing 23 professional societies, federal agencies and national and international health organizations. These revised consensus guidelines are based on recent literature and analysis of clinical data from Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) Health System including observations from approximately 1.4 million women about risk of CIN3, AIS and cancer after abnormal cervical cancer screening tests. The new updates include recommendations for: 1) extending screening intervals at all ages; 2) decreasing intervention in women aged 21-24 with low grade cervical cytological abnormalities; 3) managing abnormal cotesting results; postcolposcopy follow-up strategies using cotesting; 4) exiting women from cervical cancer screening; 5) HPV primary screening, 6) HIV-infected women and other key clinical management issues. These recommendations can be challenging to apply to specific clinical situations. This postgraduate course provides clinicians with a working understanding of the rationale for the recommendations, and opportunities to apply the guidelines in varied common specific cases and patient populations.

The target audience is all intermediate level clinicians who interpret the results of cervical cancer screening tests and who diagnose, observe, and treat preinvasive disease (e.g., gynecologists, family physicians, advanced practice clinicians (to include NPs, CNMs, PA-Cs), gynecologic oncologists, and residents in obstetrics-gynecology and family medicine). Learners will have familiarity with the core natural history of human papillomaviruses and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia; the gross and colposcopic anatomy of the cervix, vagina, and vulva; and, the fundamental principles of management of lower genital tract diseases.
