Pelvic Pain is estimated to affect 15-20% of females (Evans 2015, www.IPPS.org) . Despite this there is a porosity of management guidelines, leaving health practitioners, in some cases, with limited skills to address the complexity of these issues (Evans 2015). General practitioners (GPs) are often the primary contact for these women. Giving GPs evidence based tools and an improved knowledge base of the more common presentations based on current available evidence will assist with diagnosis, treatment and management. Upskilling in this area will improve patient outcomes and safety, and reduce the burden of this condition on the and individual and health system.Learning outcomes
