Webinar 1 Dec, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM (AEDT)

In Australia alone 6,000 plus women every year are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. They are the fourth most common form of cancer; and the fifth most common form of cancer mortality for women in Australia. General practice plays a significant role in prevention, screening, follow-up after treatment and palliative care. However, there is still scope to expand the role of general practice in collaboration with cancer specialists. Outcomes for women with gynaecological cancers are influenced by many factors including advances in technology, surgical techniques and drug regimes, and the patient’s medical history and access to services. Outcomes are also affected by the skills, composition, distribution and capacity of the workforce.
