Purpose:  
Nurses who undertake additional training and upskilling to become credentialled Nurse Pap Test Providers in a primary health care setting may work in isolation, with minimal peer support. Western Victoria PHN provides the opportunity for credentialled Pap test providers (or those currently undergoing training) who are working in general practice and community health care settings, to meet together to support each other, share learnings and network with peers. Learnings from meetings contribute to annual CPD registration requirements.

Topic:  
• Participants are encouraged to bring deidentified case studies or topics relevant to women’s health.                 
• The format of the Nurse Pap Test Network encourages group discussion and shared learnings.

Open to:
• Nurse Pap Test Providers working in the general practice setting
• Nurse Pap Test Providers working in community health settings
• Nurses currently undergoing training to become Pap Test providers
