Another successful BritSPAG annual event

Annual Update in Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology:

The Joint RCOG/BritSPAG annual conference on 28th January 2016 is usually held at the RCOG, London but this year, BritSPAG took it to Kettering to reach out to the wider group who find it difficult to travel to London due to associated travel costs.

It was overwhelming to see the attendance reaching a high level for this meeting and the feedback has been extremely positive.

Adolescents represent one quarter of the world’s population with their specific health needs being increasingly recognised.

The BritSPAG Annual Conference covered details of advances in the rapidly changing field of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (PAG). Some are technology-driven, such as advances in imaging and surgery for many aspects of management of Mullerian Anomalies. Other areas reflect increased international collaborative working such as change in practice for those with Disorders of Sex Development. As healthcare evolves so do the challenges, in both high and low-resource settings. The multidisciplinary nature of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology was reflected in the invited speakers, providing an opportunity to learn from other disciplines. 

BritSPAG Training Day update:

BritSPAG in association with East Midlands Denaery organised their exciting paediatric and adolescent gynaecology training day on Friday, the 29th of January 2016.

It provided an excellent educational and learning opportunity in the knwoeldge update related to the field of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology and was well received by the record number of registrants for the training day.
