CERVIVA HPV Awareness Symposium

22 Nov 2019

CERVIVA is a TCD led multi-investigator research consortium working in the area of HPV associated diseases (www.cerviva.ie). We are organising this National HPV Awareness Symposium to highlight some of the changes coming down the line in Ireland with respect to HPV based cervical screening and HPV vaccination and to address some of the concerns and challenges arising for health care providers.

The symposium is targeted at health care professionals and researchers with an interest in the field and will cover a broad range of topics pertinent to HPV and recent developments and research in this field. We hope to increase awareness around the whole area of HPV based screening, HPV-associated cancers and highlight the requirement for responsible health services in this area specifically addressing some of the changes coming down the line with respect to HPV based cervical screening and HPV vaccination.

RCPI approved for 6 CPD credits

National Survey on Outpatient Communication Experiences.

All women who are attending a gynaecology outpatient appointment (for any reason) in The Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, St James’s Hospital, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Galway University Hospital, Cork University hospital, Waterford University hospital and Belfast City Hospital are invited to participate in this National survey.

The findings will help to inform policies for doctor and patient communication at outpatient clinics.
