In the last two decades have been described numerous interventions to improve adherence of women to the Pap test. These interventions focus on improving the information given by professionals on the examination, the reduction of barriers for women to have access to the examination, or both. However, despite the magnitude of these interventions and the high healing potential of the CCU, the control of this injury has limited range, if the women do not return to receive the test results. This research aims to test the effects of behavioral and educational interventions on adherence of women to a return visit to receive the result of the Pap smear. This is an experimental study, clinical trial, which will be applied interventions and observed their effects on an outcome.
