In an effort to reduce the incidence and mortality rates related to cervical cancer, the New Brunswick Cancer Network (NBCN), a division of the Department of Health, has been working with a multi stakeholder Implementation Committee to plan and develop a population-based Cervical Cancer Prevention and Screening Program (CCPSP) for New Brunswick. This organized cervical cancer screening program is is being developed and is expected to begin in 2014.
Through the work of the Implementation Committee and as the first phase to implementing a Provincial Screening Program, we are pleased to provide the New Brunswick Cervical Cancer Prevention and Screening Program Clinical Practice Guidelines and Info Sheet Tool. These Guidelines are intended to assist health care providers and women in optimizing cervical screening in New Brunswick.
Educational Presentations for Clinicians are being planned in the province over the coming months.
