A new programme to help GPs better understand pelvic mesh complications is now available through Health Education England elearning for healthcare.
For many women mesh surgery is trouble-free and leads to improvements in their condition. However, this is not the case for all and some women have experienced complications.
This resource has therefore been developed to aid GPs’ awareness and understanding of pelvic mesh, their potential complications and the associated symptoms women experience such as irregular vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain.
Developed in partnership with the British Society of Urogynaecology, NHS England and Improvement and the British Association of Urological Surgeons, the programme features topics including an introduction to pelvic floor disorders in women, a history of pelvic mesh in the UK and information on the patient referral process to specialist mesh centres.
Once completed, learners will develop sound knowledge of the care options available to women suffering from pelvic mesh complications and will gain confidence to support women, ensuring they are assessed and referred to specialist services.
