About Gynecologic Cancer Education
There is no simple and reliable way to screen for any gynecologic cancers except cervical cancer, so it is especially important that health care practitioners help their patients recognize and discuss risk factors and warning signs1. That’s why ACOG is pleased to offer three free online courses that summarize the relevant literature and existing recommendations to guide clinicians in equitable prevention, early diagnosis, and special considerations concerning gynecologic cancers.
The five main types of gynecologic cancer are cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. Cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers are often grouped together with anal cancer under the heading of lower anogenital tract cancer. ACOG’s three free courses cover information and recommendations on gynecologic cancers for each of those three groups. Read on to find more information and take the courses.
Developed through a partnership with CDC, these courses are available to health care practitioners, including obstetrician–gynecologists, internal medicine physicians, family physicians, oncologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and genetic counselors.
Each course is eligible for a maximum of 7.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, 7.0 Category 1 College Cognate Credits, and 7.0 Nursing Contact Hours.
