About the IGCS Patient Perspectives Roundtable Series
During the COVID-19 pandemic and in its aftermath, IGCS will continue to be a global source of education and resources, training, public awareness, and advocacy. Virtual Roundtables will

  • facilitate first-hand assessment of patient community needs and concerns
  • provide vetted information, assessments, and guidance from key opinion leaders and seasoned survivors/advocates
  • address current patient and wider community concerns through live responses to question posted online during the session
  • promote strategic conversations with health care and research communities around specific issues
  • assist all in coming to workable solutions and strategies for moving forward during the COVID-19 pandemic and in its aftermath

Each 1-hour session will cover a specific topic important to the gynecologic cancer patient communities maneuvering through the health and cancer care system during and after COVID-19 and will include IGCS key opinion leaders, patients-caregivers, and other stakeholders appropriate to the topic. This first Virtual Roundtable will address patient care and clinical trials in the backdrop of COVID-19.
