    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine whether women with abnormal Papanicolaou smears who received educational brochures at the initial booking for colposcopy were more likely to complete recommended treatment and follow-up after 18-20 months than were those who did not receive the brochures.

    Methods

    One hundred eight women participated in an earlier randomized study of the effect of educational brochures on emotional distress and knowledge about abnormal Papanicolaou smears.

    Their medical records were reviewed 18-20 months later for completed treatment and follow-up compliance.

    Results

    Women who received the brochure had more completed treatment and follow-up compliance (75.0%) than did those who did not receive the brochure (05.8%).
