Abstract

1. The workplace has become an increasingly important site for disseminating health information and implementing health promotion activities, including cancer screening. 2. Few studies have focused on the benefits and effectiveness of worksite programs for Pap tests. 3. It is unclear from studies conducted to date if cervical cancer screening in the workplace is more likely to prevent cervical cancer than alternative approaches outside the workplace. 4. The occupational and environmental health nurse has an important role to play in worksite cancer screening programs.
