Project ECHO Sprints – Persistent Pelvic Pain

Home > Project ECHO Sprints – Persistent Pelvic Pain

Background

Persistent Pelvic Pain (PPP) affects an estimated 15-25% of women, with physical and psychological morbidity and social impacts, representing a large burden of disease. Recent federal and state investment in specialty clinics was announced this year, representing an opportunity to reflect upon how this investment might be best used for maximal benefit across our region.

What models of care will be adopted in primary care and state services? How will women access these services and how will providers work together to streamline care? What evidence is available to guide best practice and how does a best practice approach fit within our existing funding models? How will women equitably access affordable care along the care pathways? This series aims to reflect upon high quality care models for PPP in the contemporary regional primary care system.
