Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present work is to evaluate the impact of the screening program for cervical cancer prevention (CCU) and HPV vaccination on the female population and on the medical class. METHODS: In a Research Project of National Interest, the Research Units of the Sapienza University of Rome, Cassino, Ferrara, Palermo and Roma Cattolica evaluated through a sample survey knowledge, attitudes and behavior in primary and secondary prevention of the CCU. In this work are reported the results related to the answers of doctors and mothers of vaccinande. RESULTS: 91% of the participating doctors believe that women should be vaccinated before the start of sexual intercourse, and for 88.6% before vaccination the concept of sexual transmission of HPV should be studied in depth. 11.4% of doctors found side effects of the anti-HPV vaccine, all of a mild nature (from local reactions at the lipochemical injection site). 52.2% of respondent gynecologists said they had taken part in screening campaigns for CCU prevention, and among these 61% declared that the degree of patient satisfaction with the screening program was high or very high, which 88.6% is a cost-effective method. In relation to the media that can be useful to increase the percentage of women who undergo cervical screening, 61.4% of doctors consider the internet and 29.5% as social networks. Before receiving the invitation, 67.2% of mothers were aware of the existence of an anti-HPV vaccination, 96.9% and 16.4% acknowledge that the main diseases linked to HPV infection are, respectively, the CCU and genital warts. The decision to vaccinate his daughter took place mainly after consultation with the family doctor / gynecologist (43%). 80.5% say that even women vaccinated against HPV should have a PAP test. 64.1% think that only females should be vaccinated, and 34.4% both females and males. 90.6% of the vaccine mothers know the pap test, while 94.5% of them have done so, with 88.3% of the cases being satisfied with the communication aspects. CONCLUSIONS: The fight against cervical cancer must make use of the integration between primary and secondary prevention, also through new media and social networks, which need to be fed scientifically correct and effective information from the point of view to reach optimal levels of satisfaction. of communication view.
