Gynaecological Cancers: What's new?

Date: Tuesday 30 August 2022

Overview 

Our free webinars provide a unique insight into the latest developments and clinical issues in women’s health. In August, experts in the field will update the audience with the latest information in the world of Gynae cancers.

Gynaecological Oncology is one of the most demanding and vital areas of practice in O&G, and it is paramount for all Gynaecologists and Obstetricians to recognise the first signs of cancer and investigate accordingly. Delays in recognition of cancer may lead to devastating effects on a patient’s life.

The genetic linkage of cancer has now been explored in depth and we have valuable information regarding these uncommon presentations. To make sure every patient gets the care they need, it is important for clinicians to be aware of cancer genetics.

The recent studies on health inequalities in terms of quality of life and access to healthcare have highlighted the stark difference in many health issues including incidence of Gynaecological cancer. IMPROVE UK is a study to address the health inequalities in women with Ovarian Cancer.

Surgical treatment in cancer has progressed rapidly and robotic surgery is one of the newer minimally invasive technique reducing surgical time and adding precision in addition to reducing blood loss and improving recovery time. All of these are important factors in cancer surgery.
