宮頸檢查:在對計劃的建議方面取得了 "實質性的進展

一位公共衛生專家說,就愛爾蘭共和國有爭議的CervicalCheck篩查計劃提出的建議取得了 "實質性進展"。

但加布里埃爾-斯卡利博士在周三的最終報告中說,還有一些領域可以取得更多進展。

2018年的一項回顧性審計發現,221名婦女在患有癌症時被錯誤地告知她們沒有癌症。

她們的測試是在美國的實驗室進行的。

本月早些時候去世的48歲的運動家維基-菲蘭是那些被誤判的人之一。

她在2014年被診斷出患有宮頸癌,但三年前的塗片檢查顯示沒有異常情況。

她被評為英國廣播公司2018年的100位女性之一。

2018年,斯卡利博士提出了50項改革建議,包括除極少數情況外,患者有權 "充分了解自己的醫療保健情況"。

愛爾蘭總理Mícheál Martin說,他希望Phelan女士的部分遺產將是一項立法--將在今年年底成為法律--引入對患者病情的強制性披露。


There has been "substantial progress" on recommendations made on the Republic of Ireland's controversial CervicalCheck screening programme, a public health expert has said.

But Dr Gabriel Scally in his final report on Wednesday said there are areas where more progress could be made.

A 2018 retrospective audit found that 221 women were wrongly told they were cancer-free when they had the disease.

Their tests had been carried out in laboratories in the United States.

Campaigner Vicky Phelan, who died earlier this month at the age of 48, was among those who were given false negatives.

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014 but a smear test three years earlier showed no abnormalities.

She was named as one of the BBC’s 100 Women in 2018.

In 2018 Dr Scally made 50 recommendations for change, including right of patients “to have full knowledge about their healthcare” except in the rarest of circumstances.

The Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Mícheál Martin said that he hoped that part of Ms Phelan’s legacy would be a piece of legislation – due to become law by the end of the year - that introduces mandatory disclosure to patients about their condition.
