Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer in the United States and has the highest mortality rate of any gynecologic cancer. There is no simple and reliable way to screen for ovarian cancer, so it is especially important that health care practitioners help their patients recognize and discuss risk factors and warning signs.
ACOG is pleased to offer the free online course Prevention and Early Diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer, which summarizes the relevant literature and existing recommendations to guide clinicians in the equitable prevention, early diagnosis, and special considerations of ovarian cancer.
The learning objectives are to:
- Identify risk factors for ovarian cancer.
- Summarize key health disparities in ovarian cancer.
- Identify effective methods for risk modification and early diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
Developed through a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this course is available to women's health care practitioners including obstetrician-gynecologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, family physicians, medical students and residents, and allied health professionals.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
