Incorporating the BritSPAG Training Day

Joint RCOG/BritSPAG meeting


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

The BritSPAG training day will give an overview of how to assess a child or adolescent, and will cover some of the more common gynaecological conditions affecting young girls, including adolescent menstrual dysfunction, genital pain, ovarian cysts and sexual health. It will also discuss the issue of consent in children and young adults. Setting up a Rokitansky service and assessing young girls psychological needs will also be discussed.

The Annual Conference covers details of advances in the rapidly changing field of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (PAG). There will be an update on the UK Uterine transplant trail, management of complex mullerian duct anomalies, assessing children with FGM, and understanding gender dysphoria. There will also be a debate about the pros and cons of surgery for atypical genitalia in children.

The multidisciplinary nature of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology is reflected in the invited speakers, providing an opportunity to learn from other disciplines.

This course is suitable for the theoretical component of the ATSM ‘Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology’
