About

Biography

Dr Alice McGee is a Clinical Research Fellow at the Aberdeen Centre for Women’s Health Research. Alice’s research interests include cervical screening, multi-zonal disease, colposcopy performance and delivery and antenatal care.

I will work under the supervision of Professor Maggie Cruickshank. The focus of my research, as Clinical Research Fellow, will be looking at the care options available to women after a positive HPV test in the cervical screening programme. A number of companies are offering HPV treatments which are not available in the NHS, including HPV vaccination, probiotics and vaginal gels. Through a discrete choice experiment, I will also seek to determine the value women place on the different treatment options.

This proposal will take steps towards understanding an unmet need among women who have high-risk HPV and who are on early repeat HPV testing. It will seek to understand whether women have considered treatments, which benefits or risks of such treatments they consider, and which factors influence these decisions as a health economics study.
