Who can order self-screening swabs
Health care providers (such as physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, registered nurses) who possess the competencies required to appropriately assess patient eligibility for cervix screening and to support patients with recommended follow-up care, can order the self-screening devices.
How to order self-screening swabs
Starting on January 29th, cervix self-screening swabs will be available on the Cervix Screening Supplies online system
for health care providers or community health clinics to order. This is the same system currently used to order LBC/Pap test supplies. If your clinic has not used the Cervix Screening Supplies online system
before, enrol your clinic by completing the Cervix Screening Supplies registration form
As a reminder, before offering self-screening to a patient, ensure the patient is due and eligible for self-screening to avoid risks associated with over-screening. Please refer to the Resource Guide for Health Care Providers
to become familiar with the eligibility criteria.
