Target Ovarian Cancer Survey

Please take part in Target Ovarian Cancer’s Pathfinder 2016 Study. Target Ovarian Cancer completes their Pathfinder Study every three to four years. It includes surveys of GPs, gynae-oncology nurses, and women with ovarian cancer as well as mapping awareness in the general population. It shows what is working well but also what needs to change in the field of ovarian cancer.

We know how important the support of a gynae-oncology nurse is to women undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer, but we also know the increasing pressure and workloads you all face. As part of Pathfinder 2016 we want to draw attention to the importance of investing in gynae-oncology nurses, but we can only do this if we have enough responses to our survey.

The survey can be filled in online and should take no more than ten minutes to complete – www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/PathfinderSurvey2016-nurses

We know how much gynae-oncology nurses do, and how often you go above and beyond in supporting women with ovarian cancer, and with this survey and the wider Pathfinder Study, hope to show others how vital your role is and the difference it makes.

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust Volunteers

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust are currently looking for volunteers to help run their growing helpline, and we are especially interested in hearing from health care professionals who have experience and knowledge of cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities.

The Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust helpline offers reliable information, friendly support and useful signposting to women, and their loved ones affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. So far this year our helpline volunteers have helped over 600 people feel better informed, less isolated, and  more supported in their situations.

Our helpline advisors volunteer remotely from their own homes, and commit to a 3 hour shift twice a month.  The charity provides all of the helpline skills training, information, and support to succeed in this role. You will be joining a fantastic and supportive network of valued volunteers who really make a difference to women and their loved ones.
