Cervical Screening Provider Course

This interactive course will cover the theoretical knowledge and clinical skills necessary to become a Cervical Screening Provider.

Course Outline

Our Cervical Screening Provider course includes an online learning module, short assessment and a face-to-face workshop followed by clinical training. Participants who work within a general practice or community health service and who require cervical screening skills as part of their practice will benefit most from the course.

Participants will:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of the National Cervical Screening Program guidelines
  • Learn how to approach consultation and opportunistic STI testing
  • Engage with practical learning demonstrations
  • Develop clinical skills with the support of a Sexual Health Teaching Associate

Note: Nurses, midwives and Aboriginal Health Practitioners must have support from their workplace to provide cervical screening as participants will not receive a Medicare provider number on completion of this course.

The theory component comprises of an online learning module and a full day face-to-face workshop. The workshop includes National Cervical Screening Program guidelines, consultation, opportunistic STI testing and clinical skills development with a Sexual Health Teaching Associate.

Nurses, midwives, and Aboriginal Health Practitioners must register for one of the clinical training options to be able to become cervical screening providers.  The theory only option can be selected as a refresher for current Cervical Screening Providers or for education purposes only. Medical practitioners may elect to complete the theory training only but may also benefit from completing the clinical component.

Approval as a Cervical Screening Provider involves the development and successful assessment of clinical skills and competencies. This is achieved by undertaking a minimum of five unassisted clinician collected cervical screening tests under the supervision of a Cervical Screening Preceptor and recommendation for approval as a Cervical Screening Provider by your Preceptor.  This can occur either through clinical placement at SHINE SA (limited places) or with a SHINE SA approved Preceptor in your workplace.

Participants electing to complete their clinical placement at SHINE SA will be offered a full day or two half days of clinical training.  Participants must provide evidence of Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) and current Child Related Employment screening to undertake their training at SHINE SA.

Nurses, midwives and medical practitioners with a minimum of two years’ experience in cervical screening are encouraged to apply to become a SHINE SA approved external Preceptor to support participants to complete their clinical component in their workplace.
