Original Source: Self-sampling vs. Reminder letter: Effects on cervical cancer screening attendance and coverage in Finland.

Optimising attendance and coverage of organised screening is needed in order to reduce cervical cancer incidence to previous lower levels. In this study all non-participants in organised cervical cancer screening in 2008 in Espoo, Finland were randomised to receive a self-sampling kit (1130 women) or a reminder letter (3030 women). Effects on screening coverage were assessed according to the self-reported previous Pap-smear history of the participants. Participation rate in the self-sampling arm, 29.8%, was...
