Heavy menstrual bleeding - the case for improvement

This Case for Improvement supports the implementation of the Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Clinical Care Standard by highlighting what is known about the evidence, best practice and current practice for managing the condition, and the opportunities to bring these closer together.

This document has been developed to inform all those with a role in achieving high-quality care for women with heavy menstrual bleeding, including clinicians, policymakers, health system managers, researchers and consumers. It is based on published evidence where available, and consultation with consumers, clinicians, researchers and health service organisations.

This document describes:

  • Why implementing the clinical care standard is important
  • What needs to be considered to support implementation at a local level
  • The opportunities for broader initiatives and activities to overcome some of the barriers to providing the care recommended in the clinical care standard.

It should be read in conjunction with the Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Clinical Care Standard.
