RANZCOG welcomes the Australian Government's response to the Senate report on transvaginal mesh

11 October 2018

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) welcomes the Australian Government’s response to the Senate Community Affairs References Committee report: The number of women in Australia who have had transvaginal mesh implants and related matters.
Through standards, advocacy and training, the College is committed to providing care for all women. This commitment includes appropriate surgical training for clinicians and support of long term audit and monitoring. RANZCOG’s suite of patient information and clinical guidance resources promotes thorough dialogue between women and their gynaecologist to ensure care is individualised.  
The College will undertake a review of the Government’s response and identify opportunities to work with all stakeholders in the best interests of women’s health.
