Cervical Cancer Screening

Congratulations to our 2024 Bree Collaborative award winner for Best Practices in Cervical Cancer Screening:

  • UW Medicine & UW Physicians
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • MultiCare
  • United Health Care

(Adopted July 2021)

While deaths from cervical cancer have decreased significantly, the percent of people with up to date screening remains at about 50-66% depending on age group. Appropriate, up to date, screening rates also vary based on race, region, and income resulting in disparities in incidence and mortality. This workgroup met through 2021.
