  • Overview

    Despite effective screening methods for cervical cancer, many women do not have access or are not screened in a timely manner which results in delayed diagnosis and higher rates of advanced disease with lower survival rates. In recent years, immunotherapy has emerged as a new frontline treatment option that improves outcomes in women with PD-L1 positive advanced cervical cancer. In this activity you will learn about one patient’s journey with advanced cervical cancer, including her symptoms, the importance of biomarker testing, and her experience with immunotherapy.
