Further Survey information

This study is an online survey asking participants about their experiences and feelings about endometriosis diagnosis delay. Deakin University is seeking Australian adults who have been diagnosed with endometriosis or are suspected to have endometriosis by a health care professional (and hence, may be currently experiencing diagnosis delay in real time). The study aims to gain an understanding of diagnosis delay in Australia, examine factors that increase diagnosis delay, examine how participants feel about their diagnosis journey, what they believe can be done to shorten diagnosis delay and whether traumatic medical experiences can influence their care-seeking behaviours.
