In the run-up to the CSP start date, several instructive seminars were held and information was distributed electronically on the program structure, operation principles, and required involvement of GPs and GYNs (10, 11).
Both GPs and GYNs were shown not to engage with the screening program.
The study population was certified GYNs and GPs currently practicing in the national and private healthcare systems in Latvia involved in carrying out the CSP.
The questionnaires were distributed to GYNs during the general meeting of the Latvian Association of Gynecologists and Obstetricians in May 2011.
During the conference, 213 questionnaires were distributed and 158 of those (74%) were completed, representing a response rate of 32% of all 486 GYNs in Latvia that had a valid practice certificate on January 1st, 2011.
