    ASCCP Seeks Comments on New Standards for the Practice of Colposcopy in the United States

    The Colposcopy Standards project is an evidenced-based approach which used literature, data abstraction, expert opinion, systematic reviews and meta-analyses.  As much as possible, the standards try to harmonize with other programs with consideration given to a no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach due to: no organized screening, no national integrated health system, different types of providers performing colposcopy as well as a wide gap in the number of annual colposcopies performed and no formal colposcopy certification program. The call for public comment is open until March 23, 2017. Click here to review the documents and comment.
