Strategy for colposcopy training Accreditation, on a voluntary base, is made by SICPCV during the National Congress or other qualified Courses. Evaluation of CV, colposcopic training and experience, and a MCQ test are made to verify the accreditation as colposcopist. A re-validation is planned after three years.
Institutions to deal with Abnormal Screening-Results II level (colposcopy) centres, appointed by the regional screening program, deal with abnormal cytology and intraepithelial lesions (treatment and follow-up). These centres are mainly in university clinics and hospitals or in regional hospitals. All data about screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up are stored in regional screening program databases, that are collected and analysed yearly on a national level ( Survey ).
