Endometriosis Awareness Month

19 March 2018

Endometriosis the focus in March

This month, RANZCOG is supporting the Endometriosis Australia campaign EndoMarch.

To help spread awareness about this underrepresented and misunderstood women’s health issue among our community, we are highlighting resources and information for our members.

The social media campaign has highlighted Endo facts to dispel confusion, as well as including links to a number of College resources.

We have curated a Q&A with endometriosis and pelvic pain specialist, Dr Susan Evans. Read the insightful responses that highlight common misconceptions and difficulties health practitioners face when caring for women presenting with endometriosis.
