Evidence-based guideline for the assessment and management of polycystic ovary syndrome

The Evidence-based guideline for the assessment and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the culmination of two years of rigorous work from the PCOS Australian Alliance of leading Australian PCOS experts from the research, clinical and community sectors, in collaboration with the national not-for-profit women's health organisation Jean Hailes. The Australian Department of Health and Ageing funded the project, which was auspiced by Jean Hailes and supported by the consumer advocacy group Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association of Australia Inc. (POSAA).

The guideline provides thirty-eight recommendations addressing four key areas:

  • challenges of assessment and diagnosis
  • assessment of emotional wellbeing
  • lifestyle management
  • fertility

Importantly, the guideline addresses the long-term complications of PCOS including increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, depression and anxiety.  More...
