Webinar: Endometriosis – Spotting The Signs & Communicating Care

This event is available to purchase on-demand and was first delivered on Monday 22nd February 2021.


Huge shortcomings in Endometriosis healthcare were underlined last October in a report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), sparking calls for urgent government action to intervene. For example, it found that on average, it takes 8 years for a patient to get a diagnosis. Within that time, 58% of patients had visited their GP more than 10 times, 43% had visited doctors in hospital over 5 times, and 53% had visited A&E.


With 1 in 10 women in the UK affected by Endometriosis, healthcare practitioners could help to make a difference in changing these figures. Be the first to spot the signs in your patients by joining this enlightening webinar with Consultant Gynaecologist, Mr Ian Currie. We will be looking at modern thinking in diagnosis and assessment to ensure that the condition is caught early and accurately, and current and future management techniques.


Initially, we will be focusing on the aetiology of Endometriosis, and common and uncommon symptoms that your patients may present with, such as pain in the lower back or stomach or severe period pain. We will be discussing some of the red flags to identify, and patients that you should pay particular attention to who could be more susceptible. Investigations, such as a visual examination, ultrasound or laparoscopy may be necessary, and we will be exploring when each technique is needed.


There may be lots of worries or concerns for women once the diagnosis is reached, and knowing how to address such questions is crucial. Mr Currie will advise us on best-practice communication, and how to support patients who need psychological care. 


Ranging from the holistic, to the medical and the surgical, we will be considering the types of treatments readily available, as well as innovative management methods currently being developed, and what the future holds for Endometriosis. 


We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.
