New GatewayC Course: Cervical Cancer – Early Diagnosis

4th November 2021

The GatewayC team are delighted to announce that we have a new course ‘Cervical Cancer-Early Diagnosis’ available to all healthcare professionals on GatewayC.

Cervical cancer is the 14th most common cancer in women in the UK, with around 3,200 women diagnosed each year. Our new course supports primary care professionals to recognise the presentation of cervical cancer and covers clinical decision-making when referring patients on a suspected cancer pathway.

The course will support you to:

  • Identify signs and symptoms associated with cervical cancer
  • Consider risk factors and prevention of cervical cancer
  • Explore the role and transmission of HPV in cervical cancer and the stigma and misunderstanding that can be associated with HPV
  • Increase confidence in discussing abnormal cell changes with patients and when to refer patients on a suspected cancer pathway
  • Increase understanding of colposcopy investigations and effectively support patients during this process

The course should take approximately 1 hour to complete.

The course includes specialist interviews from:

  • Mr Brett Winter-Roach, Consultant Gynaecological Oncology Surgeon
  • Kate Sanger, Head of Policy and Communications at Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust
