We are in the process of developing an engaging range of workshops. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in 4 workshops over the course of the conference and will be given the opportunity to preference workshops. Delegates will be placed in basic or advanced stations based on their level of experience. Stations in past years have included:
- Mirena insertion
- Laparoscopic skills
- Perineal suturing
- Obstetric emergency simulation
- Birthing simulation
- Neonatal resuscitation
This year, there may be an opportunity for interested delegates to participate in an Contraception Implant Training Workshop, facilitated by Shine SA. This is open to AHPRA registered participants working in an O&G or GP setting. This workshop requires 10 participants to run and will cost an additional $120. Please indicate your interest during registration.

This year at our National Women’s Health Conference, PVOGS will be partnering with Days for Girls. DfG is a not-for-profit organisation who recognises the power of menstrual health as a platform for empowerment. The organisation prepares and distributes sustainable menstrual health solutions to women and girls across the globe. Their work extends into the health education and social enterprise space.
Days for Girls, South Australia branch, will be attendance on Sunday May 3rd. Delegates will be able to participate in a DfG Kit packing activity. A tax deductible donation of $15 that can be added on at the time of registration will cover the costs of production and distribution of these kits to girls in need. The representatives from Days for Girls will be able to provide information about the destination of the kits that are produced by the PVOGS Women’s Health Conference delegates.
For more information about this cause, visit the Days for Girls website: https://www.daysforgirls.org/
Saturday 2nd May, from 7pm, locations TBD
This year, selected delegates will have the opportunity to present their research in 5 minute presentations. This will provide you with the opportunity to practice presenting in front of a supportive group. We hope this opportunity will act a stepping stone to other conferences like the RANZCOG ASM. Applications for research presentations will open on Monday March 2nd and will close on Monday March 30th. Four delegates will be selected by the PVOGS ANZ Committee to present their research and selected delegates will receive a $30 reduction off their full program ticket price.
