Human papillomavirus (HPV) training course now available for health professionals
An online learning module for the cervical screening sector on the human papillomavirus (HPV) is now available on the Ministry’s LearnOnline website.
The training is aimed at cervical smear takers in primary care, and focuses on the use of HPV testing in the National Cervical Screening Programme. The training also includes information on HPV immunisation for girls.
The module is designed to support existing knowledge of HPV and the HPV vaccine. It will assist with knowing when to order an HPV test as part of regular cervical screening, and discussing the results of those tests with women.
