2020 American Cancer Society (ACS) Guidelines for Cervical Cancer Screening: The Changing Landscape for Clinicians and Patients

Wednesday, April 28, 2021; 11 a.m.-Noon ET
Hosted by SAHM Reproductive Health Committee

In September 2020, the ACS recommended that individuals at average risk should start cervical cancer screening at age 25 years with primary HPV testing every 5 years through age 65 years. This new update is in contrast to the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPTF) 2018 guidelines that recommend screening to start at age 21 years with cervical cytology alone every 3 years through age 29 years, followed by a variety of options from ages 30 to 65 years.
 
The SAHM Reproductive Health Committee invites you to join our featured speaker, Anna-Barbara Moscicki MD, and facilitators Priya Dhar MD, Loris Hwang MD, and Florence DesRosiers MD for a discussion of the research data behind the ACS guidelines; decisions by clinicians and institutions to follow the ACS or USPTF recommendations; and the implications of screening activities on subsequent management. Additional topics will include the ASCCP 2019 Risk-Based Management Guidelines, and the ASCCP 2019 Guidelines for Screening for Immunocompromised Women.

Registration is free and open to SAHM members only.
