About the Project
Beyond the Series is a project presented by the Gynecologic Cancer Initiative and is funded by Michael Smith Health Research BC. This project aims to share timely evidence-based information on prevention, diagnostics,
treatment and survivorship in gynecologic cancer that is created with patients, and for patients. Patients are not given the means nor necessarily the training, to keep up with the latest research evidence, but we have a huge capacity
of experts in Gynecologic cancer in British Columbia who can help provide timely research findings in an accessible manner.
The series will officially launch in January 2022.
