Errors in reporting cervical screening among public health clinic patients.
This study examines women's knowledge of whether or not they had a cervical smear as part of their examination in a public health clinic for sexually transmitted diseases.
Usable interviews were completed with a cluster sample of 318 women.
Approximately 56% of the women were not able to correctly report if they had a cervical smear; and 90% of the erroneous responses consisted of reporting a cervical smear when none actually was done.
