Prévention et dépistage du cancer du col de l'utérus : connaissances, participation et parcours de santé des patientes concernées

Abstract : Background: Each year in France, cervical cancer affects about 3,000 women and the number of deaths from this cancer is estimated at nearly 1,100 per year, making it the 12th leading cause of cancer and the 10th leading cause of cancer death in women. Despite the availability of a prevention (vaccination) and screening (smear) program, it is one of the only cancers for which the prognosis is deteriorating in France. The practice of smearing is still largely the work of gynecologists. Objective: To assess patients’ knowledge and health pathways regarding cervical cancer prevention and screening. Method: A multicenter quantitative observational study conducted using an anonymous questionnaire for patients recruited during a consultation with their doctor. Results: The screening participation rate was 79,8%. The last smear was performed by a gynecologist in 94.6% of cases. 71.1% of patients with at least one daughter had not had her vaccinated, mostly (67%) due to concerns about the vaccine. 75,7% of the patients who were not up to date were ready to discuss the subject with their general practitioner. Conclusion: The study showed a lack of information from participants regarding HPV vaccination and cervical smear. The best-informed patients had higher levels of participation in screening and prevention programs. In this context of updating practices, this study reminds us of the importance of clear and accessible information provided by the health professionals concerned.
