Cervical Cancer Screening
Percentage of women 21-64 years of age who were screened for cervical cancer using either of the following criteria:
- Women age 21-64 who had cervical cytology performed every 3 years.
- Women age 30-64 who had cervical cytology/human papillomavirus (HPV) co-testing performed every 5 years.
ACP supports QPP measure 309: "Cervical Cancer Screening" because the current evidence supports screening in women 21-64 years of age and this measure is based on the most recent United States Preventive Services Task Force recommendations on cervical cancer screening.
