RCGP provide a 30 minute e-Learning course to promote awareness of the symptoms of endometriosis. Using the NICE guidance as a key reference, investigation and treatment are discussed as well as when to refer to secondary care. A case study illustrates common issues with diagnosis and treatment, from early presentation in the teens through to later life, fertility issues and subsequent surgery.

The course is free to RCGP members and other healthcare professionals in the UK.
