Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

This survey was designed to benchmark current levels of knowledge about cervical cancer among women in England. The survey will allow an evaluation of the success of the Department of Health's key messages on cervical cancer in raising cervical cancer awareness. The survey made use of the Cervical Cancer Awareness Measure (Cervical CAM), which was developed by the Cervical Cancer Awareness and Symptoms Initiative (CCASI), a tripartite collaboration between the Department of Health, the Eve Appeal, and University College London's Health Behaviour Research Centre.

The survey was carried out in November-December 2009, prior to the launch on the Department of Health's key messages on cervical cancer in January 2010. A sample of 1,392 women in England aged 16 years and over completed a questionnaire on a laptop, in their own homes. The sample was selected using random location sampling, and was weighted to ensure that it was representative of women in England.

A Special Licence access version of this study is available from the UK Data Archive under SN 6646. This study includes all the variables in the End User Licence (EUL) version but with the edition of a postcode variable.
Main Topics:
The CAM questionnaire addressed the following topics:
  • public awareness of cancer symptoms
  • public knowledge of cancer risk factors
  • reasons for patient delay before contacting doctor
  • public knowledge of common cancer types in men and women
  • public awareness of cancer screening programmes
  • demographic variables
The Cervical CAM is very similar to the standard CAM but obviously concentrates on women's awareness of cervical cancer.

The survey covered awareness of the symptoms and risk factors for cervical cancer, knowledge of the cervical screening and HPV vaccination programmes, anticipated barriers to seeking medical help with a possible cervical cancer symptom, and beliefs about screening and other protective behaviours. Demographic variables are also included in the dataset.
