Useful information for GCNSs and Gynae-Oncologists

Also in this section:

There are several great resources out there to offer guidance and support to you as a GCNS or Gynae-Oncologist.

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust

As well as our resources to support your patients, we also have a new resource for you. HPV is becoming our most asked about topic and we want to help you support anyone with questions in the best way. We have developed Talking about HPV: A guide for healthcare professionals based on the calls and feedback we have had. It has a short overview of HPV, feelings people may have about the virus, common questions you may be asked, and some ways to answer those questions. It focuses on the language we use around HPV and how that can shape someone's experience.
