Uterine cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the United States and the most common gynecologic cancer. Uterine cancer incidence and mortality rates have been increasing since 2007, with significant disparities persisting for decades. For example, Black women are twice as likely to die from uterine cancer than White women.
ACOG is pleased to offer the free online course Prevention and Early Diagnosis of Uterine Cancer, which summarizes the relevant literature and existing recommendations to guide clinicians in the equitable prevention, early diagnosis, and special considerations of uterine cancer.
By the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify risk factors for uterine cancer
- Summarize key health disparities in uterine cancer
- Identify effective methods for risk modification and early diagnosis of uterine cancer
Target AudienceObstetrician-gynecologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, family physicians, medical students and residents, and allied health professionals
