The 10-minute consultation: ovarian cancer

Advisory board: J Lederman A Nordin F Richards R Thakkar W Hamilton


Although ovarian cancer was originally known as the 'silent killer', recent studies show that the majority of women have symptoms before diagnosis, even those in the early stages of disease. Primary care clinicians can find the diagnostic pathway complicated though and misdiagnosis is common.

The 10-minute consultation: ovarian cancer will provide a holistic approach to the primary assessment and management of ovarian cancer, stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based management.

The clinician's manual is designed to be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.
