Pap test unsatisfactory rates – what to know
Jan 12, 2021
The AHS Alberta Cervical Cancer Screening Program (ACCSP) is supporting healthcare providers to improve ‘unsat’ Pap test rates in Alberta. While the provincial target for ‘unsat’ rates are less than 1%, the 2019 rate was 3.6% for Alberta Precision Laboratories catchment and 1.6% for DynaLife catchment. Patients with ‘unsat’ results require another Pap test after three months. Keeping ‘unsat’ rates low helps patients avoid repeat tests.
