Activity Overview

This video-based activity is designed for health care professionals to explore the diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer through a unique perspective that puts the patient voice front and center. In addition to expert faculty who will discuss implementation of current and emerging treatment options in the management of ovarian cancer, a patient and their caregiver will lend their expertise by sharing their personal journey of living with ovarian cancer. The activity focuses on steps along the continuum of care: screening, diagnosis and referral to initiation of treatment, treatment during disease progression, eligibility and enrollment in clinical trials, and the shared decision-making that occurs along the way.
