- Choose the appropriate initial test (ie, transvaginal ultrasound or endometrial biopsy) to evaluate pre- or postmenopausal women with abnormal vaginal bleeding.
- Recommend human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for prevention of cervical cancer for female and male children according to current practice guidelines.
- Perform cervical cancer screening using Papanicolaou and HPV testing at intervals recommended by current guidelines, and appropriately evaluate abnormal test results.
- Recognize the nonspecific symptoms that may be caused by ovarian cancer and evaluate patients with appropriate diagnostic tests.
