Who to Treat and When During Covid-19

The challenge for gyn/oncs during Covid-19 is deciding who should get surgery now, who can wait, which patient should start chemo and how to treat the patient who actually has Covid.

There is no road-map to follow and what is guiding these clinicians is the answer to this question: Is the treatment curative or not?

In addition, there is no evidence-based medical guidelines to follow during this time. Because of that, the Society for Gynecological Oncology has put together the SGO Covid-19 Task Force. The goal of the task force is to, "gather and disperse important resources regarding surgery, infusion clinical trials, resident and fellow education, patient communications and wellness during the pandemic."
