BSGE Contemporary management of heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) meeting 2018

HMB is one of the most common symptoms requiring investigation and treatment. The NICE HMB Guideline first produced in 2007 has been substantially revised in line with recent innovations and the accumulated evidence.

The updated NICE guideline was published in February 2018 and impacts on clinical practice in both primary and secondary care.

Some of the new recommendations have been considered controversial.

The BSGE has put together this meeting to cover the contemporary management of HMB and its implementation within the context of the new NICE guideline.

The meeting includes a range of speakers: Some who contributed to the guideline, some who criticised it and others who have provided major contributions to the scientific literature in HMB.

Date and Venue:

Friday, 7th December 2018

Nuffield Hall, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists,
