"GP awareness has been raised by Target Ovarian Cancer’s excellent e-learning modules. Over 25 per cent of GPs have brushed up on their knowledge by completing a module."

GPs have an essential role in the early diagnosis of ovarian cancer, but may only see one case of ovarian cancer every five years. 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. 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. As with all BMJ Learning modules, this tool has been peer reviewed and incorporates the latest research available, including the 2011 NICE clinical guidelines. Developed in partnership with BMJ Learning.

Ovarian cancer: recognising early symptoms in primary care (podcast)

gp-trainingWe’ve developed a free audio podcast as an alternative format to the interactive case history module. The 20-minute podcast aims to update your knowledge on the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and is an excellent refresher for GPs looking to build on their existing knowledge. It offers one hour of accredited learning. Developed in partnership with BMJ Learning.

The Family History of Ovarian Cancer

This tool helps GPs update their understanding of familial ovarian and breast cancer, including the BRCA 1 and 2 genes. The module provides 1.5 hours of accredited learning, and includes the importance of considering the father’s side of the family in assessing familial risk, the reliability of genetic testing and risk reduction options for high risk women. Developed in partnership with Pulse Learning.
