  • Overview

    Explore the case of a young patient to see the ACS and ASCCP cervical cancer screening guidelines in action. Who needs to be screened, how is it best to screen, and what's the best test? Leading experts, Drs. Leigh Cantrell and Warner Huh, review the benefits of primary screening as they explore shifts in current guidelines. Find out how you can improve outcomes for patients, not only through appropriate primary HPV testing in lieu of cytology as the screening modality, but also by reinforcing how a “negative” HPV test actually sends a powerful “positive” message.  As a bonus, you might just change a young patient’s life.
