  • Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this CME activity, participants who manage patients at risk for cervical cancer should be better able to:

    • Recognize the scientific and clinical foundation supporting primary HPV screening when assessing a woman’s risk for developing cervical cancer.
    • Evaluate and adopt into their clinical practice emergent USPSTF draft recommendations that help to simplify and harmonize cervical cancer screening in the US and abroad.
    • Appreciate the value primary HPV testing brings to improving patient outcomes, along with recognition that US cervical cancer screening policy will likely need to be reviewed over time as HPV vaccination takes a stronger hold in the US.
  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of the obstetrician and gynecologist, family physician, internal medicine physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, and certified nurse midwife.
