HELP with topic on ENDOMETRIOSIS

  1. 0
    I pick the topic of endometriosis from a research paper and I want to see if I can get some feedback on good areas to focus on. The paper has to be 8-10 pages of information so whatever I choose has to have enough information to cover the topic. I have to use nursing journal articles and books. Example of topics r/t endometriosis is pain, or adolescence, etc or should I just focus on endometriosis and talk about define, s&s, diagnostic test, treatment, patient care and management? If you can give me some feedback I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Or you could do the paper on how endometriosis affects a woman's life...the pain, heavy periods, fear of embarassment, deciding what treatment option to pick and at what age.

    Obviously I had endometriosis pretty bad...I was absolutely thrilled to get a hysterectomy.

    Try the endometriosis association website. But be wary some of the articles are definitely biased, while others are definitely appropriate to be used as a resource for your presentation:

    News - The Endometriosis Association

    Good luck.

    This. You could also include its impact on fertility.

    Can you tell me more about what you went through? Can I use you as a reference? I'm not sure if that's appropriate... I would like to get information from someone who experienced it. If not I completely understand.

    Try contacting the endometriosis association, they sometimes have members that are willing to be interviewed about their experiences.

    Try contacting the Endometriosis Foundation of America. THey just did a conference for nurses who work with girls with endometriosis.

    You can definitely go the angle of what it's like to have to contend with it...I had laparoscopy for it about 3 years ago, where now my longterm treatment is an IUD (Mirena).

    Also, what about researching pathology? You could look in tho epigenetics of endometriosis also.
