162275 - Cabrini GP Lecture Series 2019 - Term 3 Lecture 2 Topic: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

  • : Online

 

This GP Lecture entitled Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is designed to educate GP’s on the clinical features that characterise polycystic ovarian syndrome and the long term health risks for women with PCOS. Discuss strategies to minimise these health risks and assess current management strategies in treating women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

Relevance to General Practice

A multidisciplinary approach is the best way to manage and treat PCOS and GP’s are at the forefront to lead this approach. Management of PCOS involves attention to current symptoms, fertility and psychosocial issues, as well as prevention of related future health problems including diabetes. Diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is often delayed, partially due to the diversity of presenting symptoms, resulting in frustration for patients. GPs play a vital role in the early diagnosis of PCOS and timely referral of patients, and in the prevention and management of long-term complications. Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common, lifelong condition that appears to be increasing in prevalence with increasing obesity. The focus for GPs should be on accurate diagnosis, prevention and management of excess weight gain, as well as long term support and management of psychological, metabolic and reproductive health.
