Cervical cancer prevention and early detection

Prevention At Primary Care Level (PAPRICA)

Study sites: Lyon, France
Principal investigator (PI) from IARC: P. Villain
PIs from collaborating institutions:Pr Marie Préau, Dr Arnaud Simeone, Dr Julien Biaudet, Pr Chauvin
Start date: 2017
Closure date:Ongoing
Objectives: The PAPRICA project aims to test a training platform directed to general practitioners (GPs) based in Lyon with the aim of improving their level of knowledge and skills in the field of primary prevention. The pilot phase of this project focuses on the topic of HPV vaccination.
Methodology:The PAPRICA project is a randomized study. A face-to-face training workshop on HPV vaccination was offered to GPs based in Lyon, included in the intervention arm in 2017 and 2018. A questionnaire completed by GPs in pre- and post-intervention training (+ 18 days) evaluated changes (or not) of knowledge, attitudes, norms and prescription behaviours of these GPs about HPV vaccination. A digital and remote format will soon be available to GPs based in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes in 2020.
Funding: National Cancer Institute, France
