The INCLUDE Study: Cervical cancer prevention for all

Work with large-scale linked national health datasets to develop novel evidence for primary care and policy makers. 

This project will help eliminate cervical cancer fairly in Australia by reducing barriers to access proven cervical cancer prevention services in primary health care. We will focus on five community groups who exhibit an unacceptably high burden from cervical cancer: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability, people with socioeconomic disadvantage, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and people living in rural areas. 

We will build a new digital health tool using existing, linked national data and translate the evidence generated by the tool to improved clinical practices, educational resources, national policies, and outcomes for patients.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are strongly encouraged to apply.
