NZQA Standards for Cervical Screening

The standards set for cervical screening and cervical smear-taking are to be up-dated.  This follows a report by an expert panel with representation from the Ministry of Health National Cervical Screening Programme, Family Planning, programme providers, and the unit standard national moderator. The panel convened in April and reviewed the standard to closely align with the National Cervical Screening Programme policy and quality standards, and the Guidelines for Cervical Screening in New Zealand.
