Screening Immunocompromised Women for HPV-Related Lower Genital Tract Disease
Guidelines for cervical cancer screening have continued to evolve and integrate the latest evidence to support new technologies and algorithms. Most studies reported in the literature have included low-risk populations, leaving clinicians caring for medically complex and immunocompromised women uncertain of recommended screening strategies. During the webinar, Dr. Huchko will discuss patient populations who may require intensified screening, the state of the evidence for screening in immunocompromised women and current expert opinion about recommended screening strategies.
