Stanford University Offers Free Online Course: “Health After Cancer”

2020    Stanford University’s Center for Continuing Medical Educations is offering a new online course, “Health After Cancer.” It features the basic principles of cancer survivorship to primary care physicians. Developed by a team of experts in caring for cancer survivors and narrated by a primary care physician, this course provides practical tips and tools that can be easily integrated into medical practice. The free course takes only 90 minutes to complete and is available for CME credit through the Stanford Center for Continuing Medical Education.

During the course, participants learn that Amelia is a young adult survivor of childhood cancer, Seema is a postmenopausal woman with early stage breast cancer experiencing a gamut of distressing side-effects from antiestrogen therapy, Bob is a middle-aged man treated for HPV+ head and neck cancer struggling with symptoms many months after the end of his treatment, and Richard is a vibrant college professor who chose to be screened and treated for prostate cancer and was later faced with complications from his treatment.

This course raises awareness of the complex physical and psychosocial needs and concerns of the growing number of cancer survivors, and highlights the key role of primary care physicians in guiding them back to health, after cancer.

Materials include story-based videos for each case, printable reference guides for clinical care, communication, and resources, as well as additional optional cases for extended learning. To learn more about the course or to start the course go to:
