A study to find out what people think about human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination and testing
We know that this is an especially worrying time for people with cancer and their family and friends. We have separate information about coronavirus and cancer. Please read that information alongside this page. We will update that information as guidance changes.
This study was part of a larger project called the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) Core Messages Study. It was looking at the scientific evidence about HPV as well as finding out people’s views on it. The study was supported by Cancer Research UK.
Researchers had already talked to girls and their parents or guardians, about the HPV vaccination programme. In this study they were looking at all the research that had been done looking at the HPV virus and what people thought of vaccination and testing.
The aim was to find out
- What people knew about HPV vaccination and testing
- What they thought about the vaccination programme and HPV testing as part of cervical cancer screening
Summary of results
We have contacted the trial team who tell us they don’t expect to be publishing results from this specific study.
