dc.description.abstractAim: To identify Endometriosis Nurse Specialists’ roles and responsibilities within accredited Endocentres, how these align with the Royal College of Nursing Skills Framework, and potential for development to improve patient care. Design: Cross-sectional national survey. Methods: Data were collected from an online survey distributed to all 66 Endometriosis Nurse Specialists working across 58 UK-based Endometriosis registered centres. The response rate was 58% (n=38). Data from closed questions were analysed using descriptive statistics and free text responses were collated and analysed thematically. Results: Unlike Nurse Specialists in other fields of practice, the majority of Endometriosis Nurse Specialists (n = 33, 87%) had another nursing role. The median hours worked per week as an endometriosis nurse was only 13.5 hours. Most respondents (n=35, 92%) spent all or most of their allocated hours collecting and inputting endometriosis data, whilst over a third (n=13, 34%) were not undertaking any autonomous, nurse-led patient consultations.en
