Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series for Primary Care Providers

The Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series is a free continuing education program that provides a forum to educate primary care providers (e.g., general medicine physicians, geriatricians, gynecologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses) who may have patients who are cancer survivors about how to better understand and care for survivors in the primary care setting.

Clinicians can learn about caring for survivors of adult-onset cancers through a series of ten enduring online educational modules.

CDC’s New Gynecologic Cancer Curriculum

CDC developed a new e-learning curriculum about the risk factors, symptoms, prevention strategies, and screening recommendations of gynecologic cancers. The curriculum, intended for primary health care professionals, consists of 6 modules that address gynecologic cancers including cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar cancers. Access these case-based e-learning modules and earn free CE!

We encourage you to watch two brief three minute video funded in part by the South Dakota Comprehensive Cancer Control Program on the evidence-based colorectal cancer screenings available to your patients, as well as risk appropriate screening for breast cancer.


CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control is pleased to make available two new CDC-sponsored continuing education courses for health care providers: “Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Optimizing Quality.” One version is intended for primary care providers, and the other is intended for clinicians who perform colonoscopies. Continuing education credits are available for physicians, nurses, and other health professionals.

Colorectal cancer screening can save lives, but well-documented problems with screening implementation in clinical practice can reduce its effectiveness. These courses provide guidance and tools for clinicians on the optimal ways to implement screening to help ensure that patients receive maximum benefit. The courses were developed by a group of nationally recognized experts in colorectal cancer screening, including primary care clinicians, gastroenterologists, and leaders in public health programs and research.

The courses can be accessed free of charge at
