Abstract

Key Points • Knowledge and fear may act as barriers to cervical screening • Women (N = 402) received no information about screening, statistical information or barrier-tackling information • Statistical and barrier-tackling information improved knowledge of how frequently women should be screened • Barrier-tackling information reduced the false belief that screening tests for cancer • Screening intention did not vary between the conditions
