Abstract

HIV-infected women are five times more likely to develop invasive cervical cancer. Routine screening can detect early signs of cancer and provide an opportunity for treatment. However, suboptimal screening rates are reported in this population. This retrospective study examined the rates of cervical cancer screening in HIV-positive women, conducted according to the current guidelines, from 2014 to 2016 in an inner-city clinic. We implemented focused scheduling for eligible women by a designated medical assistant. Testing was conducted using Thin Prep™ and Cervista HPV HR™. Chi-square tests and logistic regression models were used to assess predictors of cervical cancer screening in 2016. A total of 360 adult HIV-infected women were active in medical care, as of December 31, 2016. Most were African American (77%) and aged 51-60 years (38%). In 2016, 75% of women met the guidelines for cervical cancer screening, compared to 48% in 2014. There was a significant association between receipt of cervical cancer screening in the prior 3 years and screening in 2016. In an adjusted model, those with a prior screening were 6.88 times (95% CI, 3.47-13.67) more likely to be screened in 2016, compared to those who were never previously screened. Focused scheduling and implementation of the updated cervical cancer screening guideline extending the period of rescreening, after 3 yearly negative results or negative Papanicolaou/human papilloma virus testing, resulted in an increased proportion of women meeting the current guideline.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 March 2018.
All research outputs
#3,450,107
of 13,789,144 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Women's Health
#142
of 535 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#119,123
of 402,578 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Women's Health
#2
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,789,144 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 535 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 402,578 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
