164550 - PCOS and Endometriosis

  • : Online

The Royal Women's Hospital invites General Practitioners to come and increase their knowledge and skill sets in PCOS and endometriosis diagnosis and management. 
Obtaining a timely PCOS or endometriosis diagnosis is challenging for women, with many experiencing delays with multiple different doctors involved. Inadequate information provision and lack of satisfaction with care has been reported, especially in areas such as psychological features, lifestyle and prevention. Doctors often focus on individual features such as infertility, rather than taking a broader approach to care. There is also potential for over diagnosis, including when isolated poly-cystic ovarian morphology on ultrasound is incorrectly equated with PCOS. Access to timely, accurate diagnosis and information provision needs significant improvement. 
This session will guide GPs about assessing, investigating, managing and referring adolescents and women having dysmenorrhea.
