Cervical cancer hypothetical case studies
This video series follows the hypothetical cervical cancer journeys of Anna, Jane and Arabella — from screening and diagnosis through all aspects of their multidisciplinary cancer care.
The series was developed from the Cancer Institute NSW's Gynaecological Cancer Professional Education Forum 2011, and features discussion by a multidisciplinary panel of experts, facilitated by Dr Norman Swan.

Hypothetical cancer journeys
Anna is a 50 year old, married, Muslim woman with no children. She has never had a pap test and visits her GP to discuss post-coital bleeding.
Jane is a 38 year old married woman who lives in Orange with her husband and two children. She has been trying to conceive another child, and in this video she visits her rural GP to discuss abnormal intermenstrual and post-coital bleeding.
Arabella is a 29 year old single woman who lives independently. She visits her GP to discuss contraception in the context of a new relationship. She hasn't had a pap test since completing the HPV vaccination and is unaware of the need for ongoing pap testing.
