Participation in a Swedish cervical cancer screening program among women with psychiatric diagnoses: a population-based cohort study
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2019

In Sweden, organized screening programs have significantly reduced the incidence of cervical cancer. For cancers overall, however, women with psychiatric diagnoses have lower survival rates than other women. This study explores whether women with psychiatric diagnoses participate in cervical cancer screening programs to a lesser extent than women on average, and whether there are disparities between psychiatric diagnostic groups based on grades of severity.
