Colposcopy data for the National Cancer Screening Register

Colposcopy data for the National Cancer Screening Register

GUIDELINE UPDATES - This guideline was last updated 7/1/2022

Under the renewed NCSP, all colposcopists are required to report a minimum data set to the National Cancer Screening Register (NCSR). A colposcopy subgroup of the NCSP Quality and Safety monitoring Committee has defined the minimum data set required as part of the Quality Framework for the NCSP. 

Colposcopy data can be entered into the NCSR using the Healthcare Provider Portal (this requires a Healthcare Provider Individual Identifier (HPI-I) and a Provider Digital Access (PRODA) account). The NCSR website provides information about how to access and use the Healthcare Provider Portal. Information can also be provided to the NCSR by HL7 direct links with specific clinical software systems or by using the paper form. 

Healthcare professionals should ask all women whether they identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, and a woman’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status should be recorded on relevant clinical records, including pathology request forms, in accordance with the Australian Bureau of Statistics classification and standards.
