VALDES VALLADARES, Carlos Alberto. Causes of absence from the cervical pathology department . Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.4. ISSN 0864-0319.

A cross-sectional and descriptive study was performed in "Felo Echezarreta Mulkay" Polyclinic in San José de las Lajas Municipality among 40 females aged 25-65 (100% of the study group) that were diagnosed CIN I, CIN II, CIN III and in situ carcinoma in their cytologies. They had been absent from the cervical pathology department during 12 months, from January to December 2006. A questionnaire was applied to identify the main causes of absence. The family physician's offices where these females received attention were supervised to confirm the actions and strategies carried out with them. The following variables were studied: age, educational level, CIN staging, absence period, knowledge on their disease, health actions taken, and main causes of absence. It was concluded that the studied females do not know about their pathology, treatment, and prognosis, that the health team provide little information, and that the actions taken are insufficient. Absence is mainly related to the difficulties in the functioning of the cervical pathology department, and to the fact that they fear the diagnosis
