According to the charity Endometriosis UK, around 1.5 million women in this country live with this gynaecological condition – which is similar to the number of women living with diabetes. In view of the debilitation it can cause, and the potentially profound complications of infertility and incontinence, endometriosis is rightly considered a condition worthy of dispensers’ attention.
This dispenser training, available free and exclusively to DDA members, is designed to provide practice dispensary staff with background information on endometriosis.
Throughout this training, you will find various activities to help reinforce your learning. Ten, multiple choice questions at the end will help you identify any areas needing a quick recap.
By the end of the training dispensers will:
- know what endometriosis is and the symptoms it can cause
- understand how the condition is diagnosed
- be aware of how endometriosis is managed, including pharmacological and surgical options
- appreciate some of the issues presented by the condition, and the impact it can have on patients and their families.
