METRICS is comprised of three interconnected observational projects which are designed to understand how cervical cancer screenings are delivered across our spectrum of delivery models, and how to optimize the screening process to reduce disparities.
Project 1 will utilize innovative geospatial and Bayesian statistical methods to better evaluate at what levels variation in the screening process occurs.
Project 2 will investigate how multilevel programs and policies influence adherence to guidelines for average-risk women.
Project 3 will inform precision screening for women with altered risk.
Our observational findings will inform the design of interventions utilizing technology-enabled tools to address key failures in the screening process with the goal of reducing disparities.
