Ovarian Cancer Virtual Education Series

In collaboration with expert clinicians, The European Society of Pathology (ESP), the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), AstraZeneca, & MSD have developed educational modules on diagnostic testing in ovarian cancer patients. This Virtual Education Series consists of key modules designed to provide training on the theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of diagnostic testing in ovarian cancer, as well as supporting videos and a self-assessment to ensure the principles and need for diagnostic testing are understood. 
This six-part series consists of key modules designed to provide training on the theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of diagnostic testing in ovarian cancer. Modules can be completed in any order.

This educational content was co-developed and funded by AstraZeneca and MSD. The authors, reviewers, and editors of these educational materials have made extensive efforts to ensure that treatments, diagnostics and discussions about medical practice are accurate and conform to the standards accepted at the time of publication. However, constant changes in information resulting from continuing research and clinical experience, reasonable differences in opinions among authorities, unique aspects of individual clinical situations, and the possibility of human error in preparing a series of educational  materials  mean that other sources of medical information may differ from the information on this site. Content in the educational materials reflects medical practice and information in Europe. Outside of Europe, clinical guidelines, practice standards, and professional opinion may differ and the reader is advised to also consult local medical sources.
