Ovarian Cancer

Background

These two modules introduce the treatment principles in ovarian cancer and review the biology of the malignancy. We walk through the role of the cancer nurse specialist as a core member of the multidisciplinary cancer team in long-term management of ovarian malignancies.

The modules focus on topics including identifying and mitigating the side effects of ovarian cancer treatments, complications following surgery, and provide suggestions to facilitate patient counselling.
