In many countries, Psycho-oncological support for patients with gynaecological cancer is lacking, and/or knowledge in this field is poor.

Therefore, our curriculum Psycho-oncology aims to address the most important issues regarding psycho-oncological support in daily clinical life.

The e-module aims to cover the fundamental information on psycho-oncological support for every gynaecological oncologist and contains the lectures on the following topics. In the end, there is a post-test to help you test and improve your knowledge. The number of test attempts is unlimited. 

  1. Psychosocial needs of women with gynaecological cancer and of their family members, integration of diagnostic tools in clinical routine (techniques, instruments).
  2. Therapeutic options (cognitive behavioural (psycho-educative), supportive expressive, meaning based intervention techniques and creative therapies).
  3. Communication skills (how to break bad news, difficult situation of patients with cancer, targeted therapy/ personalized medicine, shared decision making, communication within the multi-professional teams with roll games and simulation patients).
  4. Professional environment (infrastructure, prevention of burn out, supervision/coaching)

You can watch the lectures in any order that you like but you will only have access to the module post-test after viewing all the lectures within the module.

After you have successfully completed the post-test and the evaluation, you will be able to submit your feedback to the course and download your certificate.
