Prolapse and Pessary PhD Needs Your Input for Survey - SECOND SURVEY RELEASED

18 November 2016 - 5:38pm

Pessary use for prolapse

Pessaries are widely used in the management of pelvic organ prolapse but the evidence for their use is limited. So much is unknown about them: when, which, with who, by who, why???? This project hopes to be part of the evidence-gathering process about pessaries.

The second survey for the James Lind Alliance (JLA) Pessary Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is now open via this link:

http://www.gcu.ac.uk/hls/pessarypsp/ 

Over 600 questions, submitted in the first survey have been

refined down to 66 questions about pessary use for prolapse which clinicians and women affected by prolapse want answered by future research.

Pessaries are widely used in the management of pelvic organ prolapse with surveys suggesting that 70% of doctors will offer to fit one as a first line conservative management.

The evidence for their use is limited. This project hopes to be part of the evidence-gathering process about pessary use for prolapse.

This second survey invites you to choose and rank your top ten questions from the 66. The survey will be open until the end of July and the top 30 questions will go forward to the Final Workshop in London on 8th September when the Top Ten will be decided by consensus.

 Please take part in the survey and make your views count.

The survey link can be shared with family, friends and patients too.

If you have a patient who has experience of using a pessary or choosing not to for the management of prolapse who you think might be interested in being part of the final workshop in September please get in touch with me now.
