Recommendations from the Senate Inquiry into transvaginal mesh implants
The AMA advises its members that the Therapeutic Goods Administration has set up a hub for doctors and patients to provide information and support related to transvaginal surgical mesh devices. The TGA transvaginal mesh hub is one of the outcomes of the Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee Urogynaecological Mesh Inquiry.
The Inquiry identified where improvements can be made to recognise and support women impacted by transvaginal mesh implants. Thirteen recommendations have been released to assist health professionals and organisations supporting these patients. A copy of the response can be found at the Department of Health’s Government responses to enquiries webpage.
