The VPS is a charity aiming to educate the public about vulval pain as well as provide help and advice to sufferers. We therefore support any initiatives to help increase the knowledge, skills and competencies of all health professionals, including medical students, in improving the assessment and management of chronic pelvic (including vulval) pain. Pelvic pain conditions are poorly managed and have a major impact on patients' quality of life, everyday functioning and reproductive health. It is vital that we invest in the education of our future workforce in the field of pelvic pain if we are to improve treatment and support available to all those living with pelvic pain conditions.
