Qualitative Study of HPV Self-Collection Experience and Cervical Cancer Screening in Patients With a History of Sexual Trauma
The purpose of this study is to explore the HPV self-collection experience among individuals with a history of sexual trauma.
Office-based pelvic exams may pose as a barrier to cervical cancer screening for sexual trauma victims. This study will conduct individual interviews to evaluate the self-collection screening experience in this population with the goal of expanding cancer screening access.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- You are at least 25 years old
- You have a cervix
- You have access to a device with video capabilities (i.e. smartphone, tablet, computer)
- You reside in Oregon
- You identify as someone with a history of sexual abuse or trauma
Qualified participants will receive all study related materials at no charge and will be compensated up to $100 for their time.
