Etude qualitative sur le point de vue des femmes éligibles au dépistage du cancer du col de l’utérus mais non à jour du frottis face à un nouveau test de dépistage, l’auto-prélèvement vaginal HPV

Abstract : Introduction - The new French recommendations propose the introduction of the HPV test as part of organized screening. This has the advantage of being able to be carried out using a vaginal self-sampling, efficient to increase the participation of non-participating women. The main objective of the study was to collect the views and feelings of women regarding HPV vaginal self-sampling.
Methodology - Eleven women who had not had a smear for at least three and a half years, and aged between 30 and 65, have been interviewed by semi-structured individual interview using an interview guide. The women were able to appropriate the test as well as the leaflet, created for the study.
Results - For some women, the HPV vaginal self-sampling seemed easy to use, small, ergonomic, practical, more intimate. The test appeared to be a medical device and allowed control of the gesture. Other women were confused about the manipulation, the risk of contamination or falsifying the results. Some women were afraid of being faced with a positive result. Women of lower socio-economic status seemed more perplexed, less confident, but the test seemed feasible. The women wanted an organized course of care combined with clear, precise and varied information. Several screening strategies have been proposed, such as sending a self-sampling kit by mail or involving doctors.
Conclusion - The HPV vaginal self-sampling seemed to be a promising alternative for non-participating women. Information actions, the establishment of an organized care path combining strategies and upgrading the place of the general practitioner could be avenues to evaluate for a good integration of the HPV vaginal self-sampling.
