Investigating self-compassion in individuals living with endometriosis 

Living with endometriosis can be physically and mentally challenging. You are invited to participate in a study supported by Endometriosis Australia which aims to investigate how self-kindness influences the psychological impact of endometriosis and whether there is a relationship between social media usage and self-kindness.

Evidence shows that self-kindness can help individuals better manage their health conditions.  

This two-part study will involve a 30 minute survey and three writing exercises that will each take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

CLOSED – Exploring challenges in making decisions about endometriosis treatment

You are invited to participate in a study exploring the challenges people face when trying to make decisions about endometriosis treatments. The results of this study will inform the development of an online resource that will help people to make better-informed choices about treatments that suit them best.

This study will involve you completing an initial online survey, followed by participation in an online focus group.

EndoCannED trial

Deakin researchers are exploring the potential use of medicinal cannabis for pain management in people with endometriosis. The trial will look at whether prescribing medicinal cannabis instead of opioids can reduce emergency department presentations for people with endometriosis.

If you have a confirmed diagnosis of endometriosis, are aged 20 and over, live in Victoria, and have presented to an ED two or more times in the last 6 months for pelvic pain-related symptoms you may be eligible to participate.

MCRI LongSTEPPP research

Researchers at The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) believe that periods shouldn’t ruin your life.

MCRI’s LongSTEPPP project is a 5-year study that will measure and track periods, pain, quality of life, and mental health in young people affected by period or pelvic pain and endometriosis to find out how to best care for them.

Body image sexuality and wellbeing – OPEN

The research team at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) would like to understand how endometriosis impacts your overall wellbeing, body image, and sexuality.

Any person, assigned female at birth, aged 18 years or older, is invited to participate in this project via online surveys that are completed at a series of time intervals.

UTAS is keen to hear from people who may be about to have excision surgery or who have had previous surgeries.

Uni of Melb – OPEN

Researchers are interested in identifying transdiagnostic psychological factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of depression, anxiety and eating symptomatology in medically-ill populations, with a focus on endometriosis.

This research represents an important opportunity to increase clinical understanding of these psychological symptoms in endometriosis and provide targets for psychological interventions aimed at reducing symptoms.
