dc.description.abstract In anticipation of the launch of the national cervical screening programme, a questionnaire was distributed amongst 200 women on the maternity wards of the Coombe Women’s Hospital. The questionnaires revealed that 24% of the women surveyed never had a smear test and 50% of these did not know how the test was performed. The majority of all women did not know what a smear test showed and 26% did not know the meaning of an abnormal smear. Irish women’s knowledge of cervical screening is limited, and the success of the proposed programme will depend on an improvement in public information and education. en_US
