European guidelines for quality assurance in cervical cancer screening
Second edition : supplements
The current supplements to the second edition of the European guidelines for quality assurance in cervical cancer screening have been developed in a time of transition when primary testing for oncogenic human papilloma virus (HPV) types and vaccination against infection with the HPV types that cause most cases of cervical cancer have become complementary approaches to cervical cancer prevention in Europe. By focusing on the core topics of quality assurance in primary HPV testing, organisation of HPV-based and cytology-based screening programmes, and implementation of HPV vaccination... programmes, the supplements lay the foundation for further development of the comprehensive European Guidelines in the coming years. The original volume of the second edition was published in 2008.
