Abstract [en]

In this study we focus on women who have no registered cervical smear during the previous 5 years, their requirements for attendance, and promotive efforts performed. Of the 400 women randomly selected to answer a telephone-based questionnaire about future attendance at cervical cancer screening (CCS), 120 would consider having a cervical smear taken, and 50 of them wanted help to accomplish that. When meeting the women's requirements, such as being assured friendly treatment and a suitable appointment time, the numbers of registered cervical smears were higher for the study group compared with a control group. Still, the most highly resistant women did not attend.
