Objective: Family doctors and nurses who work in primary care and whose main task is providing preventive health services are aware and knowledgeable of cervical cancer (risk factors, screening,  prevention) and the HPV vaccine.  

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Family Health Centers (FHC) in a province in Turkey. No sample was selected. All family physicians and nurses working in all the FHCs in this province were planned to include in the study. Data were collected with a questionnaire.

Results: While 28.4% of the physicians and 35.3% of the nurses stated they had enough knowledge about cervical cancer, 37.3% of the physicians (n=50),  and 33.8% of the nurses (n=46),  correctly knew which age group was more prone to cervical cancer. While 64.9% of the family physicians(n=87),  and 52.2% of the nurses partly agreed about their daughters’ being vaccinated against HPV, 17.9% of the physicians and 19.9% of the nurses rejected it.  

Conclusion: Family physicians and nurses participating in our study were aware of the importance of cervical cancer and HPV, but not knowledgeable enough about risk factors, measures to be taken, findings, Pap smear and HPV vaccination.  

Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı; temel görevi koruyucu sağlık hizmetleri olan birinci basamakta çalışan aile hekimleri ve hemşirelerin  serviks kanseri (risk faktörleri, taranması, önlenmesi) ve  hpv aşısı konusundaki farkındalıkları, bilgi düzeyleri ve hpv aşısı için hastalarını nasıl yönlendirdiklerinin araştırılmasıdır.

Gereç-Yöntem: Bu kesitsel çalışma, Türkiye'de bir ilde Aile Sağlığı Merkezleri'nde (ASM) yapılmıştır. Örneklem seçilmemiştir. Bu ildeki ASM'lerde çalışan tüm aile hekimleri ve hemşirelerin çalışmaya dahil edilmesi planlanmıştır. Veriler anket formu ile toplanmıştır.

Bulgular: Hekimlerin% 28.4'ü ve hemşirelerin% 35.3'ü rahim ağzı kanseri hakkında yeterli bilgiye sahip olduklarını belirtirken, hekimlerin %37.3’ü (n=50), hemşirelerin %33.8’i (n=46), serviks kanserinin en sık görüldüğü yaş aralığını doğru bilmiştir. Aile hekimlerinin %64.9'u (n=87), hemşirelerin %52.2’si kızları olsa ya da varsa HPV aşısı yaptırabileceğini, hekimlerin %17.9'u, hemşirelerin % 19.9'u ise yaptırmayacağını belirtmiştir. 

Sonuç: Çalışmamıza katılan aile hekimleri ve hemşireler serviks kanserinin ve HPV'nin öneminin farkındaydı, ancak risk faktörleri, alınacak önlemler, bulgular, Pap smear ve HPV aşılaması konusundaki bilgileri yeterli değildi.
