Address (Room): Zoom webinar
NICM Health Research Institute presents Dr Jason Abbott, Professor of Gynaecological Surgery UNSW Sydney; Director, GRACE Unit at the Royal Hospital for Women; and Medical Director of Endometriosis Australia. Join guest seminar speaker Professor Jason Abbott, as he discusses endometriosis research, medical and surgical management of endometriosis, healthcare policy and barriers to care, and the importance of multidisciplinary care. Endometriosis management has followed a traditional medical model for many years, with hormone-based medications and surgery the mainstays of treatment. The Clinical Guidelines on the diagnosis and management of endometriosis were a key deliverable of the 2018 National Action Plan on Endometriosis and 75 recommendations were made with a determination of overall low-quality evidence. This primarily included traditional approaches with notation of absence of specific sub-groups of the Australian population represented in the available evidence and treatment options including diet, CAM therapies and physiotherapy for symptom management poorly represented. There are a range of national programs that aim to improve the available evidence and deliver higher quality care for women with endometriosis which Professor Abbott will present.
