Abstract:

The proposed study design constitutes an attempt to associate social capital and its dimensions with cervical cancer prevention in a sample of female nursing and social work university students. Aim: To investigate the knowledge and adequate use of the cervical cancer prevention test (Pap test) in young female university students in relation to their social capital and its parameters. Material and Method:  A cross-sectional quantitative research design will be used to investigate whether there is an association between total social capital or its dimensions and cervical cancer prevention. Female students who study at the School of Health and Social Sciences of Hellenic Mediterranean University will constitute the study population. The Greek version of the Social Capital Questionnaire will be used for data collection. Statistical analysis will be performed with SPSS.  Expected  Results: Findings of the proposed study will add to the existing theoretical knowledge regarding female cancer prevention among women of the post adolescence age and will further reinforce improvements in the health services on a primary and secondary basis.
