Improving and Sustaining Cervical Cancer Screening Rates Issues, Challenges, Successes Moderator: Deborah Willis-Fillinger, MD, PO, HRSA/HAB/DCHAP Co-Presenters/Facilitators: Mississippi QM Group: Tonya Green, Stephanie Pettiet Hedgepeth, Kawanis Collins Eastern PA QM Group: Elizabeth Brown, Jim Bond, Christa Delong

Workshop Assumptions We all have an interest in women’s health. We all have experience; however we don’t have the answers. We’re here to learn about improving HIV+ women’s health with a focus on annual Pap screens Let’s reach a better understanding together.

Workshop Learning Outcomes By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: • Engage in a dialogue with grantees about their experiences with • Improving cervical cancer screening rates, • Facing challenges from multiple perspectives – organizational, supportive services, and patient level, and • Sustaining improvements.

• Identify successful approaches and interventions.

Renewing Commitment

Cervical Cancer Screening The Clinical Case Deborah Willis-Fillinger, MD HRSA/HAB/DCHAP AGM 2012

Shorter Survival For Women? • Analysis of studies involving more than 4,500 people with HIV infection revealed women were 33 percent more likely than men to die within the study period.

1990- 1995 • New York City AIDS Surveillance data from 1990 to 1995, observed cervical cancer cases in HIV-positive women were two to three times higher than the expected number of cases.6,7

2007- 2009 • By 2009, in the U.S., women accounted for more than 25% of the new HIV infections. • For women the most common methods of transmission were high-risk heterosexual contact and injection drug use.

What We Can Do…. • Cervical cancer can be prevented or detected in its earliest stages through effective Pap smear screening. • Even HIV-infected women with invasive cervical cancer tend to do well with surgery and treatment and good immune function • Accentuates the importance of routine Pap smears for HIV-infected women.13

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) • Common infection in the general population. • Over 50% of sexually active adults have been infected with one or more HPV types. • Within 5 years of sexual debut—70% have HPV

HPV 16-18 and Pap Co-Tests? • 100 genotypes of HPV – 15 cause cancer • HPV 16 & 18 = 70% of cervical cancer

• Co-Testing for HPV with Pap Smears may Increase predictive value of cervical cancer screenings.. More to come.. • Current Guidelines….

Tough Road To Sustaining Improvement Experience

National Benchmarking Data – 2007-09 HIVQUAL GYN Care Indicator GYN Care in review period 3,640 women eligible in 2009 Eligible/denominator: at least one clinical Visit in each 6-month period of the review period.

Clinic mean for patients who had both a pelvic exam and a Pap test: 69% to 62%

GYN Care 96%93%

100% 80%


90% 85%


60% 40%

Of 2,293 women with a pelvic and pap smear, clinic mean of –23% (556) abnormal –With clinic mean of 90% (487) referred for follow-up

20% 0% Pap and Pelvic (all females)

What is Your Measure? What are Your Rates? How many of you are using HRSA/HAB performance measure for Cervical Cancer Screening? Percentage of women with HIV infection who have a Pap screening in the measurement year • Numerator: Number of HIV-infected female clients who had Pap screen results documented in the measurement year • Denominator: Number of HIV-infected female clients who: – were >18 years old1 in the measurement year or reported having a history of sexual activity , and – had a medical visit with a provider with prescribing privileges2 at least once in the measurement year

What are your results? Please raise your hands. How many have results? How many have sustained their results after improvement efforts? < 50% 50% - 60% 60% - 70% 70% - 80% 80% - 90% 90% - 100%

Are we still facing the same reasons for low rates or variable rates? Program Data from 2008

Sharing Experiences Small Group Discussion Instructions: Divide into groups of 5-6 participants. Each group should have only one person from a program. Select a facilitator and recorder. Discuss the following questions and, then, share your recommendations for further action. 1. What interventions and approaches have you tried? Please share your successes and challenges. 2. Have you been able to sustain your gains? If yes, why? If not, why not? 3. What are your recommendations to guide future improvement work for women’s health and annual cervical cancer screens?

Large Group Exchange and Summation A volunteer from each group shares the highlights of the group’s discussion.

Large Group Summation: 1. Are there recurrent ideas and themes related to improving and sustaining annual pap tests? If so, what are they? 2. Any additions? Comments? Ask
