May is still Women’s health month – so I invited my mate Dr Geordan Shannon back onto the podcast in order to get a refresher on cervical cancer screening – yes, the dreaded Pap smear.
Geordan is a passionate advocate and researcher for Women’s health, sexual health and especially Aboriginal health issues related to reproduction and inequity in health outcomes. Cervical cancer is a disease that highlights the huge gap between white and Aboriginal Australia. We had a chat about why this might be still happening and then Geordan schools me in the basics of Pap-smearology. What is new, how do we decide what to do with the results.
Sorry if this seems a bit basic – but I am [as previously stated ] a really inadequate gynaecology practitioner, so for me this was helpful!
