FACCHIN Federica

  • Assistant Professor, Catholic University of Milano, Milan, Italy

Dr Facchin has been investigating the psychological impact of endometriosis for years, in collaboration with Professor Paolo Vercellini and his team. Her quantitative and qualitative studies, published in the most important journals in the field, highlights the complex nature of the disease and the multiple factors associated with impaired psychological and sexual health, and work functioning.

As a psychotherapist, Dr Facchin has had the chance not only to study endometriosis, but also to listen to the stories of the women affected by the disease, which has been very important for her research.
