  • Screening for Postpartum Diabetes

  • Screening for Premenstrual Syndrome

Update: After an initial scan of the available evidence for screening, discussion by the Multidisciplinary Steering Committee and evaluation of public comment, the WPSI has decided not to move forward with the topic, Screening for PMS/PMDD.  The decision was based on the limited evidence on which to base a clinical recommendation for screening.  The topic may be reconsidered if more evidence becomes available.
