Access GatewayC’s Ovarian Cancer – Early Diagnosis course

Friday 11th December 2020

We are delighted to announce that the new Ovarian Cancer – Early Diagnosis course is now available on GatewayC.

Ovarian cancer is the sixth most common cancer for women in the UK, with around 7,400 diagnoses each year. Most women are diagnosed at advanced stages of the disease, as there are relatively fewer symptoms at stage 1 and 2 partially due to the cancer’s locality in the pelvis.

This course will support you to:

  • Increase recognition of the symptoms of ovarian cancer
  • Understand how genetic risk factors increase the likelihood of a cancer diagnosis
  • Increase confidence in decision-making about appropriate investigations to undertake

Specialist interviews from:

  • Prof. Gordon Jayson, Professor of Medical Oncology at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dr Emma Woodward, Consultant Clinical Geneticist at Saint Mary’s Hospital

Watch this short course clip below which focuses on Karen Smith, a 54-year-old woman, who visits her GP with bloating and frequent sharp pain in her upper abdomen:
