Training modules for GPs

GPs have an essential role in the early diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Our free online learning and training modules will help you stay up-to-date on the latest ovarian cancer information.

Bloating and other abdominal symptoms: could it be ovarian cancer?

This 30-minute module, featuring case studies, takes a closer look at symptoms and what distinguishes ovarian cancer from common conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, urinary tract infection and ovarian cysts.

It was developed in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) eLearning. 

Recognising early symptoms of ovarian cancer: interactive case history

This award-winning module provides an hour of accredited learning based on interactive case studies, and covers the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and diagnostic tests.

It was developed in partnership with BMJ Learning. As with all BMJ Learning modules, this tool has been peer-reviewed and incorporates the latest research available, including the 2011 NICE clinical guidelines on ovarian cancer recognition and initial management.

Ovarian Cancer – Early Diagnosis

The ovarian cancer early diagnosis course uses a series of video consultations to present Karen’s experience of ovarian cancer diagnosis. At each stage you will have the opportunity to reflect on Karen’s symptoms, treatment and investigations, and consider how you would manage Karen’s care if you were her GP.

It was developed in partnership with GatewayC, an online cancer education platform for primary care

Podcasts

We have developed two podcasts in collaboration with the Primary Care Women’s Health Forum (PCWHF), a charity dedicated to the education and support of healthcare professionals across the UK caring for female patients.

Improving outcomes for women in primary care

Dr Anne Connolly interviews Sara Pardoe, who has a diagnosis of ovarian cancer, and discusses how primary care GPs can work together to improve the outcomes of women with this type of cancer.

Ovarian cancer from the primary care perspective

In this podcast, Dr Sharon Tate, Head of Primary Care Development at Target Ovarian Cancer, and GP Dr Victoria Barber discuss ovarian cancer diagnosis from the primary care perspective.

Access both podcasts through our Spotify site.
