Cervical Cancer Screening in the LGBTQ+ Community: Dispelling Common Misconceptions and Improving Patient Comfort
LGBTQ+ patients are more likely to forgo cervical cancer screening due to common misconceptions/misguidance about who needs screening and increased likelihood to experience emotional and/or physical discomfort during screening visits. This project aims to educate LGBTQ+ patients about cervical cancer screening and provide them with tools to improve their experiences during screening visits.
