A selection of guidelines is available for members, covering a variety of subjects including consent, investigations and minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The BSGE was actively involved in setting the general standards for hysteroscopic and laparoscopic procedures. These guidelines and best practice information have been finalised and are available for our members to download together with further useful information from NICE and the RCOG.
There are a number of guidelines in the pipeline. Hopefully later this year or early in 2019 we will see the release of RCOG guidelines on Laparoscopy in Pregnancy and on Morcellation. The guideline on Laparoscopic Injuries is currently under review. I will update on the progress of these on this page and in my Portfolio Report in The Scope
In the near future the Patient information and Guidelines team will be working together with the Website team to create a more accessible site. We will also be looking at developing more patient information resources including leaflets and video content.
