Genetics Education Module
This resource is only available to SGO members.
Created by the SGO Advanced Practice Provider Committee with physician support, this resource was designed as an introductory educational tool with an overview of genetics in gyn oncology and is intended for advanced practice providers and allied health professionals who are new to caring for women with gynecologic malignancies. New APPs need a convenient way to access an overview of genetic information and impacts that includes information regarding diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management. In addition, experienced APPs can benefit from using it as a reference for updates.
This resource is a downloadable PDF, and is not currently eligible for CE credit.
