This study aims to compare the efficacy and participant experience of telehealth-based, self-collected cervical cancer screening to mail-based, self-collected cervical cancer screening across the adult female screening lifespan. This will be done by evaluating sufficient Human papillomavirus (HPV) sample collection and determining preference for self-collection verses provider collection, comparing role of telehealth in pre- and postmenopausal women's comfort with self-collection, comparing self-collection completion rates for women with and without telehealth visits.


This will be a prospective, randomized study of women ages 25 and older, stratified by menopausal status (defined as 12 months or greater without menses or time at which both ovaries have been surgically removed), who are eligible for cervical cancer screening.
