    Cervical cancer screening programs are effective in the prevention of cervical cancers and have decreased rates in the US where it is available. Central to screening is colposcopy, the use of a binocular microscope with illumination to carefully visualize the cervix and upper vagina. Despite its widespread use, its diagnostic ability is limited by poor sensitivity and inter-observer reproducibility. In 2017, the ASCCP attempted to address these limitations by creating standards for the procedure including: terminology, number of biopsies, and how the procedure is performed and documented. The guidelines were meant to be translatable to a varied audience and adoptable widely. This webinar reviews the 2017 Colposcopy Standards.

    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.

    In this ASCCP webinar, we will review the diagnosis and management of vulvar dysplasia. We will discuss best practices, with regard to the work-up of vulvar lesions, and we will examine challenges when making an appropriate diagnosis due to similarly appearing vulvar lesions. Finally, we will discuss the evidence for best practices regarding treatment and risk for recurrence.

    There is new information on HPV Vaccination including changes in the ages of recommendation and changes in view of other cancer prevention including head and neck cancer. There is population based data from other countries that have ramifications for US providers and patients. Additionally, there are new understandings on the immune mechanisms behind HPV vaccines.

    Cervical cancer screening has had significant impact on the reduction of cervical cancers and mortality from cervical cancer in countries where screening programs have been effectively implemented. However, cervical cancer remains a significant health concern for women worldwide, and existing screening programs can still be improved upon. This webinar will discuss the history of cervical cancer screening and its shortcomings to provide context for emerging recommendations in cervical cancer screening. The use of HPV as a primary screening tool will be discussed, including the recent United States Preventative Services Task Force recommendations for cervical cancer screening.

    Although the topic of vaginitis is often trivialized, it causes significant discomfort and symptoms for women who suffer from either acute or chronic vaginitis. In this presentation, Dr. Nyirjesy will summarize the overall evaluation of women with vaginal complaints and discuss the benefits and limitations of various testing modalities. This section will be followed by a discussion of the most common causes of infectious vaginitis (bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, and vulvovaginal candidiasis) and of desquamative inflammatory vaginitis, with management tips for managing both acute and chronic cases.

    Pathology consultation is geared toward providing useful information to assist in the provision of optimal care. This webinar will cover laboratory aspects of the evaluation of lower genital tract disease. Topics to be covered include: types of HPV testing available, handling of biopsy and excision specimens to obtain the best report possible, molecular testing and immunohistochemistry, and areas of diagnostic difficulty.

    The incidence of vulvar skin infections is increasing, probably related to genital hair grooming and MRSA infections. This webinar will review the diagnosis and contemporary management of vulvar cellulitis and abscesses, as well as management of Bartholin duct infections, including office incision and drainage and correct use of the Word catheter.

    Conversations about abnormal test results in general and positive HPV tests in particular are challenging. Research shows that patients often come away from these discussions with misinformation, feeling stigmatized, fearful, and likely to be non-adherent with follow-up plans. The goal is for patients to come away from these conversations without unnecessary anxiety and with the accurate information they need to make informed decisions and follow through with next-steps. What are the best counseling strategies when discussing abnormal results and responding to a patient's concerns? This webinar reviews the available data about HPV and counseling strategies and provides a deep dive into best practices and clinical pearls for having these conversations effectively. An expert clinician and a patient demonstrate examples of how to discuss the science and apply shared decision-making techniques when counseling patients about abnormal screening and diagnostic tests.
