CME: Wounded Warriors and Healing Heroes: Creating New Partnerships to Promote Resiliency for People Affected by Serious Illness (Module 3)

Breast cancer remains the most frequently diagnosed solid tumor and second leading cause of cancer death in U.S women. If these rates continue, a female child born today will have about a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer at some point during her life. Greater public awareness of signs and symptoms have increased early diagnosis, breast cancer treatment is still dependent on clinical factors such as stage, histology, HER-2 and hormonal status.

It is estimated that 20 million Americans may have the human papillomavirus (HPV). Yet more than 76 percent of U.S. women have never heard of this sexually transmitted virus which causes nearly all cervical cancers. Women who are not diagnosed with cervical cancer through screening typically present with advanced disease. In 2010, the NCI placed the number of newly diagnosed cases of cervical cancer at 12,000 with related deaths at 4,000.

The scientists and clinicians at City of Hope have a long history of developing and advancing new techniques to screen for, diagnose and treat gynecologic and breast cancers. With the goal of contributing to the improvement of quality of life and overall outcomes for these patient populations, these activity has been designed by these experts, representing multiple disciplines, to profile and discuss the current advances and future directions in the treatment of gynecologic and breast cancers, and to engage with the learner in discussion as to their incorporation into current treatment paradigms.
