Gynaecological surgery is constantly evolving. To inform practice with high-impact research, clinicians need to focus on areas of importance. Surveys of specialist members of the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy have revealed a range of areas for research: diagnostic performance of laparoscopies; therapeutic laparoscopies in endometriosis; laparoscopic versus hysteroscopic sterilisation; and laparoscopic surgical techniques, among others. Clinical and economic outcomes are important in evaluating effectiveness and use of surgical health technology. For studies to be valid, reliable and generalisable, they would have to be free of bias, large and multi-centred. In a time of financial constraints, it is important to encourage clinicians and trainees to participate in important research studies to improve outcomes for patients.
