Survey: Perspectives on Female Pelvic Examinations

Barwon Health is researching the perspectives of both urologists and urology SET trainees on the examination of the female pelvis within the outpatient clinical setting.

USANZ previously circulated this survey in November 2023 but Barwon Health are seeking more participants. The study is open to all urologists and SET urology trainees in Australia and New Zealand.

Barwon Health has noted some male urologists and trainees avoiding female pelvic examinations in clinic rooms despite routinely performing digital rectal examinations on males. The study aims to identify the practices and associated reasons for this.

They are currently seeking urologists and urology-trainees to complete a short survey to outline clinician attitudes. The survey contains 10 questions and is expected to take less than 3 minutes to complete. The research has ethics approval – local reference number 22/147.The survey runs until 15 June 2024.
