CervicalCheck wants to hear from the LGBT+ community

(18 Feb 2021)

CervicalCheck would like your help in research we are conducting into the LGBT+ community’s experiences with cervical screening. 

The aim of our study is to examine the knowledge, attitudes, participation and interaction of lesbian and bisexual women, trans men, intersex and non-binary people with a cervix, with cervical screening in Ireland.

The study will include both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. A national online survey will capture quantitative data, while focus groups will seek to capture lived experience. The research will also collect qualitative information from screening providers, sampletakers and national LGBT+ organisations. 

We are partnering with a researcher and the LINC community organisation to conduct this work. LINC aims to improve the quality of life, health and wellbeing of all women who identify as lesbian or bisexual in Ireland.

The survey only takes a few minutes to complete. If you think you can help, and you can find it here

We ask all healthcare workers to consider informing patients of the research and encourage participation.  

We look forward to sharing the final report with you and implementing the recommendations.
