Research Question:
Will using text messaging prompts increase cervical cancer screening uptake among emergency department patients?

Basic Study Information

Invasive cervical cancer is preventable with adequate screening but screening rates are considerably below national goals. Emergency departments care for a disproportionate number of women who are not up to date with recommended cervical cancer screening. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a mobile technology based behavioral intervention (using text messaging prompts) to increase cervical cancer screening uptake among emergency department patients.
