Cancer Screening: One-on-One Education for Clients – Cervical Cancer

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends the use of one-on-one education to increase screening for cervical cancers. One-on-one education delivers information to individuals about indications for, benefits of, and ways to overcome barriers to cancer screening with the goal of informing, encouraging, and motivating them to seek recommended screening. These messages are delivered by healthcare workers or other health professionals, lay health advisors, or volunteers, and are conducted by telephone or in person in medical, community, worksite, or household settings.
