Social Work intervention in an early ovarian cancer detection program has helped women who are at high risk for the disease because of family history, make full use of the clinic's medical resources. It has provided an enabling component for their participation in required medical procedures; has assisted them in dealing with unresolved emotions precipitated by their relative's death from cancer earlier in their lives; and has helped them move into the next indicated stages of medical intervention.
