Expression of Interest to be part of our new Community and Consumer Advisory Panel now open!
Would you like to help guide research to increase cervical screening, and prevent cervical cancer in Australia? We are looking for community members and consumers to join our Community and Consumer Advisory panel!
Screening is one of the best ways to prevent cervical cancers, or to find cancers early so treatment can be provided. Some people find it harder to access regular screening, which puts them at greater risk of cervical cancer.
There have been recent changes to the National Cervical Screening Program, which can help improve access to screening. Our team at The University of Melbourne is working with our partners on research to support more people to access screening.
We are looking for community members from different backgrounds and different parts of Australia to join a panel to help guide this research
Are you a person with a cervix (the cervix is the opening to the uterus or womb), aged between 25 and 74 years and living in Australia? Do you identify with any of the following?
- living in a rural or remote area
- from a different cultural background
- a member of the LGBTIQ+ community
- Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
- living with a physical disability
We want to hear from people who have had a cervical screening test before and people who haven’t
