Abstract

Key Points
• Knowledge and fear may act as barriers to cervical screening
• Women (N = 402) received no information about screening, statistical information or barrier-tackling information
• Statistical and barrier-tackling information improved knowledge of how frequently women should be screened
• Barrier-tackling information reduced the false belief that screening tests for cancer
• Screening intention did not vary between the conditions
