We need your questionnaires

To determine the practices of our participants, a supplementary questionnaire will be included with all Pap program laboratory result forms in the “C” mailings. Please take the time to answer the questionnaire and let us know about the use of applications such as the Bethesda 2001 terminology and HPV testing in your institutions. The results of the questionnaire will be published and mailed for all participants to review.

The information we gather is the basis for the benchmarking data used in the cytopathology checklist and is used to evaluate laboratory statistical data. The data were last collected in 1997. This update will incorporate Bethesda 2001 terminology and is important.
