Release of Australian Endometriosis Guideline

On 27th May 2021 the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology released new Australian clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of endometriosis. The guidelines are aimed at health professionals, people with suspected or confirmed endometriosis; policy makers and researchers. 

Given the seriousness of this chronic, debilitating condition which impacts the quality of life of one in every nine Australian women aged 18–44 years, the NCWQ urges NCWQ members to alert the target cohort of the availability of these guidelines.

If NCWQ members have not already answered the call for action and written to their local Member of Parliament requesting representation on funding for education of girls in Queensland schools about endometriosis, perhaps they might like to do so and add the following to the end of the paragraph on the National Action Plan for endometriosis:-

“Through funding from the Australian Government, in line with this National Action Plan, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology has developed guidelines for new Australian clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of endometriosis. https://ranzcog.edu.au/news/release-of-australian-endometriosis-guideline
