Summary of activities

VCS Foundation Ltd. delivers on its charitable purposes through three service functions, namely: VCS Pathology supports the cervical screening program: providing a high quality and efficient screening service for Victorian women at risk of cervical cancer. In 2017/18 VCS Pathology reported 150,907 Conventional Pap tests and 122,912 HPV tests at the commencement of the renewed National Screening Program, representing 50.38% of the primary cervical screening tests taken in Victoria. VCS Pathology continued with 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. The Main Trial recruitment was over 73,000 at 30 June 18. In addition, VCS Pathology provides free educational sessions and resources for medical and health professionals to improve skills and knowledge about cervical screening, HPV and Chlamydia to General Practioners, Registrars and Nurses. Victorian Cervical Screening Registry (VCSR) is a key component of the cervical screening program, recording results of most primary cervical screening performed in Victoria. The register contains a linked record for each woman, detailing screening results and subsequent investigations. VCSR provides a history link for laboratories and produces statistical information and reports on cervical screening. In addition, the South Australian Cervix Screening Program Register is administered by VCSR under contract to the South Australian Department of Health. Within this function, VCS Foundation Ltd. also delivers the participant follow up function for the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program in Victoria. National HPV Program Register (NHVPR) plays an essential role in supporting effective delivery and completion of HPV vaccination courses and in monitoring and evaluating the HPV vaccination program. NHVPR records HPV vaccinations administered, undertakes follow up and reminder functions, conducts research and produces statistical information on the National HPV Vaccination Program.
