RANZCOG Endometriosis Guidelines

In March, EndometriosisWA released a statement in response to the community's call to action on the endometriosis guidelines. We believe the current guidelines fail to address the needs of the endometriosis community for many reasons, including the use of gender-exclusive language, exclusion of recent advancements in research, a lack of guidance for pain management and minimal community consultation during their creation.

 

EndometriosisWA committed to highlighting the community's concerns. We have sent an open letter to RANZCOG outlining what our community would like to see in a new set of guidelines. We would like to thank all the people living with endometriosis who provided their time, their opinions, and their lived experiences to contribute to this letter. As an organisation founded by and largely run by people with endometriosis themselves, it is important to use that our endoWArriors have their voices heard.

Once received, we will be publishing the response from RANZCOG. We are dedicated to advocating for Western Australians living with endometriosis and always welcome community feedback. If you would like to reach out, please email us at info@endometriosiswa.org.au.
