Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): international collaboration to translate evidence and guide future research
A unified approach to integrate evidence, optimise management and guide future research in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is necessary. This has motivated an international collaboration to develop an International Evidence-Based PCOS Guideline to improve health outcomes in women with PCOS.
Members of the ECR-EST were recruited from the ECR networks of the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Women’s Health in Reproductive Life (CRE WHiRL) and Androgen Excess and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (AE-PCOS) Society and also those who were affiliated with members of the GDG.
Dissemination and translation of the guideline into health policy and clinical practice are crucial steps to close the knowledge – practice gap, guide future research and enhance positive impact on the health of women with PCOS.
