Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects approximately one in seven women worldwide from early adulthood with heterogeneity in their healthcare needs through the life cycle. PCOS is challenging to diagnose and manage, with one-third of women reporting at least a 2-year delay in diagnosis. Current clinical services do not satisfactorily educate and support women with their diverse reproductive, metabolic, and psychological care needs with fragmentation of services across health providers. Women are dissatisfied with the care they received, while the first contact general practitioners often feel ill-equipped to diagnose and manage PCOS...

Lifestyle (diet, physical activity [PA], and/or behavioral) interventions are recommended for all women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in international guidelines. The internet is a widely used health information resource. However, the accuracy of lifestyle information on PCOS websites is unknown and is reviewed here to inform translation of the international guideline on PCOS. An internet search was conducted with three search engines across different web browsers and countries. Accuracy was assessed through a checklist of 29 questions based on international guidelines for diet, PA, or weight management for the general population and for PCOS with higher scores indicating greater accuracy...

In this paper, we describe the robust governance structures and processes underpinning the development of the first International Evidence-Based Guideline for the Assessment and Management Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (2018). The guideline was an outcome of the Centre of Research Excellence for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and an example of a transformative, strategic research initiative to impact delivery model. The governance structure supported and delivered critical ethical and regulatory outcomes, including: broad and diverse representation across health professional and consumer groups and exceeded regulatory standards; adherence to rigorous knowledge creation processes; and compliance with the standards for guidelines set by the approval body, the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)...

Despite polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) being the most common endocrine condition affecting reproductive-aged women, studies have shown the information needs of PCOS consumers are not currently met. The expressed need by women with PCOS for accessible, evidence-based personalized PCOS information informed the design and development of the PCOS mobile tool-AskPCOS. The App provides a range of unique features such as: evidence-based PCOS health information, self-diagnostic function, a question prompt list to optimize health practitioner engagement, and a commonly asked questions list...

BACKGROUND: People are increasingly seeking health information and managing their health through electronic technologies. We aimed to determine if women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) identified a need for PCOS-related mobile health apps and to evaluate related apps currently available. DESIGN: A national survey of women and a review of apps available on the iOS and Android platforms. SETTING: Community recruitment in Australia in 2016 and review of mobile apps available in 2017...

BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common yet complex condition, where education is vital. It predominantly affects reproductive-aged women, the age group with peak use of the Internet, now a major source of health information. Women with PCOS are dissatisfied with care, and the lack of useful online information is a key concern. METHODS: Using a rigorous and systematic methodology, we examined the quality, information content, and user-friendliness of online information about PCOS...

Research translation and evaluation are often underconsidered in research design and implementation thus limiting research benefit to the end user. In this article, we first describe a best practice approach to evaluation, for a center of research excellence in polycystic ovary syndrome. Within this, we outline a comprehensive research translation program with inbuilt evaluation of the first International Evidence-based Guideline for the Assessment and Management of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (2018). We seek to provide a real-world example of comprehensive approaches to evaluation and research translation...

This article aims to identify and summarize the information, resource, and education needs of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and their healthcare providers. A systematic search of peer-reviewed, primary research literature was conducted. A total of 4,230 articles were identified, duplicates were removed, as well as the title and abstract of 2,819 studies and the full texts of 123 studies were screened against predetermined inclusion criteria. Findings from 35 included studies are described narratively...

The evidence-based guideline for the assessment and management of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) integrates the best available evidence with international, multidisciplinary clinical expertise and consumer preferences to provide health professionals, consumers, and policy makers with high-quality, comprehensive guidance about diagnosing and managing PCOS. Here, we outline the rigorous and systematic process, defined a priori and documented to be reproducible, to minimize bias and maintain transparency, in alignment with the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE II) criteria and incorporating the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) framework that render this PCOS evidence-based guideline credible, trustworthy, reliable, and useable...

BACKGROUND: To inform knowledge translation by identifying evidence-practice gaps in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) care and variations between disciplines and across world regions via an online, anonymous, devised questionnaire distributed via professional societies and completed by 1,495 physicians (2015-2016). METHODS: Multivariable logistic regression analyses generated adjusted odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for associations between outcome measures and world region, specialty, annual patients with PCOS, age, and sex...

Implementation of healthcare guidelines, a set of recommendations aiming to optimize patient care, can be a complex process which is at risk of poor translation into practice. Failure to adopt new evidence-based healthcare findings can contribute to a large variation in care, potentially affecting outcomes for service users. Designed to avoid this issue, the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation (MCHRI) knowledge translation framework was created to support the development and future implementation of clinical practice guidelines...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal condition with reproductive, metabolic, and psychological sequelae. The Rotterdam Criteria are now internationally accepted, with different phenotypes recognized with varying clinical presentations and risk profiles. The complexity of the disorder, and the impact on quality of life, requires timely diagnosis, screening for complications and management strategies. PCOS remains underdiagnosed and women experience significant delays to diagnosis. Effective dissemination of evidence-based management is therefore vital...
