Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine condition in women of reproductive age and is associated with high risk of long term metabolic and psychological conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and depression. These patients present at a young age to the health care system and seek information about their condition. A structured education program seems to be able to answer these questions. Structured education selfmanagement programs are pragmatic and cost-effective patient-centered group educations which are underpinned by learning theories and empower patients to take control of their management and reduce their associated long term risks. In this paper, we introduce structured education programs and review the evidence of education programs for women with PCOS.
