European societies in obstetrics and gynaecology gather for information sharing in Glasgow

News 7 May 2014

Knowledge and ideas from across Europe in the field of women’s health will be exchanged at the 23rd European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, held on 7–10 May 2014 in Glasgow.

The Congress, organised by the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG) in association with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), will draw together expertise from national societies of O&G from across Europe.

The scientific programme consists of three days of lectures and debates covering a wide range of topics such as assisted reproductive technologies, uterine transplantation, ovarian failure, fetal hypoxia , pre-eclampsia, induction of labour and gynaecological cancer screening.

In addition delegates will be able to attend hands-on training sessions on subjects such as operative vaginal delivery, post partum haemorrhage and obstetric emergencies including shoulder dystocia, breech delivery and managing eclampsia.

Professor Alan Cameron, Chair of the RCOG’s Scottish Organising Committee and Vice President of the RCOG, said:

“EBCOG represents 36 member national societies of Obstetrics and Gynaecology from both EU and non-EU Countries and this is a great opportunity to hear about issues in other European countries and learn from each other.

“We all have the same objective to improve women’s health care and it will be great to meet colleagues from all over Europe with the same aims in mind.

“The Congress also offers hands-on training sessions and postgraduate courses. The packed scientific programme will ensure this is an excellent event covering the latest developments in our specialty.”
