In July 2020, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) launched the Endometriosis e-Learning Module and Awareness Tool, a project funded by the Australian Government as part of the National Action Plan for Endometriosis https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/national-action-plan-for-endometriosis.
Associate Professor Alan Lam felt greatly honoured and humbled to be designated as Chair the Endometriosis Online Learning Project Committee.
“It is a great effort in which health professionals from the front-line specialties, ranging from nurses, general practitioners, gynaecologists and obstetricians, fertility specialists, pain specialists, and emergency physicians – who are members of this committee – have collaborated,” Alan says.
“We’ve been able to develop a very structured online learning module that meets the myriad of clinical presentations that women can present, whether that is through the general practitioners, the emergency department, the fertility specialist, or the gynaecologist; that is the biggest strength of this leaning module.”
We hope that these tools will help:
- girls and women suffering from period and /or pelvic pain self-assess their symptoms and seek earlier help from their family doctorshttps://ranzcog.edu.au/womens-health/patient-information-guides/other-useful-resources/rate
- doctors recognise, assess and manage endometriosis-associated issues (pain, subfertility, cyst …) better. https://ranzcog.edu.au/womens-health/patient-information-resources/endometriosis
