This module will help you to assess whether a diagnostic medical test is likely to add value to patient care. You will be introduced to – or reminded of – skills that will help you to assess the diagnostic value of medical tests.

National Cervical Screening Program

Australia has one of the lowest rates of cervical cancer in the world, largely as a result of the success of the National Cervical Screening Program over the last 25 years. The program is changing based on the latest available evidence on the development and prevention of cervical cancer.

The objectives of this course are to provide online training for health professionals who conduct cervical screening tests and follow-up management for women, in accordance with the recommended changes to practice and the clinical pathway.
