The 2019 ASCCP Risk-based Management Guidelines: Updated Management for Abnormal Screening Tests
Date: November 20, 2020
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM (PST)
- Patty Cason, MSN, FNP-BC, President, Envision SRH
- Michael Policar, MD, MPH, Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Francisco
The 2019 ASCCP Guidelines are substantially different from earlier versions and reflect increased understanding of the natural history of HPV infections and progression to high grade lesions. Management recommendations for the new guidelines were updated based on data from significantly larger databases than were previously available. Six “clinical action thresholds” will be presented that form the basis for the recommendations. The clinical action thresholds are derived from the calculated risk - based on current and past test results, that the individual will have or develop a high grade/pre-cancerous lesion. Presenters will highlight the significant revisions to the 2019 ASCCP Guidelines and share practical tips for implementing and integrating the new guidelines into practice. Participants will practice with the new ASCCP mobile APP and the APP that is free on the ASCCP website for management recommendations.
