Abstract

One of the most notable changes stemming from consensus guidance in 2012 is cessation of cervical cancer screening in low-risk women aged older than 65 years. Despite evidence provided for this recommendation, implementation in clinical practice can be challenging, with resistance from patients and providers. This NAMS Practice Pearl reviews data supporting this recommendation and provides clinicians with confidence as we counsel our patients.
