Survey – Resources for cervical screening participants and their whānau

Closed 22 Jun 2022

Opened 10 Jun 2022


From July 2023, the primary test for cervical screening will change to a human papillomavirus (HPV) test. Self-testing with clinical oversight will be an option for all participants.

This survey aims to build on knowledge and resources, and input gathered previously, in order to determine what resources (pamphlets, web pages and other materials) for participants and their whānau will be required for the transition to HPV Primary Screening.

To gather initial requirements for this work, we are seeking to draw on sector expertise to understand how current resources are used, and from your perspective which current resources work for wāhine and what gaps you’ve identified that it is important for the programme to understand as we progress this work.

We’d like to invite you to submit your feedback through this survey.

The survey closes on 22 June 2022. We encourage you to provide your feedback and expertise based on your experience working with wāhine and whānau.

Please note this survey is to identify requirements of resources for cervical screening participants and their whānau. Resources for health professionals is out of scope; we will be seeking feedback regarding this workstream at a later date.

Your feedback will be collated and shared back via the HPV Primary Screening working groups at meetings to be scheduled soon.

Following review and endorsement by the Māori and Pacific Campaign and Resources Advisory Groups (CAGs) we will develop a scope of work to contract an agency for this mahi. This agency will work closely with the Māori and Pacific CAGs as well as gathering insights and testing approaches with wāhine and whānau focus groups throughout the resource development process.
