VCS Pathology also commenced the Compass Main Trial which is a clinical trial of up to 121,000 women, comparing 2.5-yearly Pap test screening with 5- yearly Human Papillomavirus (HPV) screening. It is the first large scale clinical trial internationally to assess these screening tests in an HPV vaccinated population and is being carried out by VCS in collaboration with Cancer Council NSW.In addition, VCS Pathology provides free educational sessions for medical and health professionals to improve skills and knowledge about cervical screening, HPV and Chlamydia to General Practioners, Registrars and Nurses.
