Health professional tools are designed to:

  • Provide guidance for the ongoing management of the condition
  • Provide links to comprehensive evidence-based information and patient resources
  • Highlight practice points and key messages

Tools to further support PCOS assessment and management

A new guideline for the assessment and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been developed by a team of international experts (Monash University, CREPCOS, ESHRE and ASRM). 

PCOS is a hormonal condition with reproductive, metabolic and psychological features. PCOS affects 8-13% of reproductive-aged women with up to 70% of affected women remaining undiagnosed. 

Jean Hailes for Women's Health is a proud translation partner in the guideline, released in July 2018. It will be used to inform Jean Hailes programs and resources for women and health professionals.
