Within the NHS Cervical Screening Programme there is an expectation that cervical sample takers should undertake a minimum of one half day update every three years in order to maintain theoretical competence. Training requirements for medical and nursing professionals are equivalent.
Who Should Attend?
Any registered nurse or doctor who is currently actively involved in the Cervical Screening Programme.
Debbie Brittain is Course Leader for the BSc (Hons) Sexual Health at UCLan. She also leads the Contraception: First Issue of Hormonal Contraception in Practice and Cervical Screening in Practice modules. Debbie is a qualified contraceptive health nurse and undertakes observational visits within local CASH services to maintain her knowledge and support her educational and clinical role.
The aim of the workshop is to ensure that on completion, the Health Care Professional maintains their competence in taking cervical samples for the purpose of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme (NHSCSP).
