Webinar: Delays in HPV Cancer Diagnoses and Treatment in Rural Communities

Jul 10, 2020 | Kimberly Sharpe-Scott

Residents of rural areas have a higher cancer mortality, particularly for cancers that are preventable through screening such as cervical cancer. There are many barriers to screening and cancer treatment for rural areas. Moreover, rural primary care healthcare team factors impact timely referral to oncology specialty care. Patient costs related to cancer screening, early detection, and diagnoses pose additional barriers. Due to these challenges, rural cancer patients experience delays in time to diagnosis and treatment and receive less curative treatment and follow-up care. There are an estimated 1.3 million gynecologic cancer survivors in the US. Patients with gynecological cancers have improved cancer-related clinical and oncological outcomes if they receive their cancer-related treatment and medical care from gynecologic oncologists who work in multidisciplinary teams and high volume hospitals. We need to improve the referral pathway for rural gynecologic oncology patients in rural primary care and rural oncology practices to receipt of specialty care from a gynecologic oncologist.
