Pap Smear Collaborative

The Pap Smear Collaborative commenced in December 2008 with eleven general practices participating. The collaborative came to a conclusion in late October 2009.  See article in February 2010 Generally sPeaking newsletter.

The objective of the Collaborative is to conduct a quality improvement activity within the practice:

  • To understand and improve the capacity of general practice to provide cervical screening
  • To increase Cervical Screening rates for all eligible women in the general practice setting
  • To identify and address the barriers which currently limit cervical screening rates in general practice
  • To identify, reinforce and disseminate successful strategies found to improve cervical screening rates in general practice
