Abstract:
NL has one of the highest provincial incidence and mortality rates of cervical cancer in Canada. Despite widespread screening cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates have increased whereas national rates have declined. To improve screening rates, health providers need to understand reasons for non-adherence. Research has identified many barriers to cervical screening. It is important to understand whether these barriers are similar for women in NL. This two-phased research study is being conducted to examine reasons associated with failure to avail of screening among a sample of women who have been diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Utilizing a qualitative design, results will reveal an understanding of women's perceptions, beliefs and attitudes associated with cervical screening and insight of how to improve the experience. Data will provide direction and a framework for the design of a quantitative questionnaire to be utilized in phase two. Data analysis of phase one has revealed six themes and seven recommendations. The themes offer insight to the barriers of cervical screening. The seven recommendations offer ways to effectively respond to women's personal reasons for non-adherence to cervical screening. Study results will benefit NL health providers to develop recruitment strategies that may assist in increasing cervical screening.
