Professional Education to improve cervical cancer prevention worldwide
- HPV vaccines and new diagnostic and screening tools have the potential to make cervical cancer largely a disease of the past.
- Lack of appropriate professional knowledge has recurrently been identified as one of the major hindrances to the implementation of national cancer control programmes and a contributing factor to late access to diagnosis and treatment.
- Knowledge transfer between professionals and to a lay audience is critical for long-term sustainability
A contribution to tackling these challenges is the UICC HPV and Cervical Cancer Curriculum.
HPV and Cervical Cancer Curriculum
- An e-learning tool as basis for courses, workshops and self-learning
- Powerpoint presentations with speakernotes and voiceovers on key topics related to HPV and cervical cancer
- For healthcare personnel, programme managers, researchers, educators, policy-makers
- To improve individual knowledge on HPV and cervical cancer
- To provide evidence-based, state-of-the art, interdisciplinary and user-friendly teaching material
The Curriculum is being field-tested in several countries. Any comments and suggestions are welcome! Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The curriculum is currently available in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. The Kiswahili version will be available soon.
