Disparities in Ovarian Cancer: Increasing Awareness to Improve Risk Assessment and Outcomes

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in women with gynecologic malignancy and the fifth leading cause of cancer death in the US. Although the incidence of ovarian cancer is higher among White women than Black women, studies have identified disparities in assessment, care and outcomes seen among Black women with ovarian cancer. It has been shown that outcomes in clinical oncology can be improved when care is delivered by high performance teams. This activity was designed by oncology care team members to increase awareness of disparities among Black women with ovarian cancer and potential actions the team can take to reduce them.
