It gives me great pleasure to announce that the above annual congress is being organized by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of the Witwatersrand. The meeting will be held at Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital. A specialized area will be reserved for the industry who wish to be part of our congress. The preliminary programme is as follows:
Day 1: 3 Workshops to be run concurrently
Workshop 1: The use of ultrasound in the diagnosis of pelvic floor disorder
Workshop 2: Surgical Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence: An update on world events and guidelines for treatment
Workshop 3: Vaginal Hysterectomy workshop
Day 2: Live Surgery
This will involve a day of live surgery demonstrations relevant to the treatment of female pelvic floor disorders. This programme is currently being finalized however there remains an opportunity for the trade to forward proposals on procedures that are relevant and would add value to the programme.
Day 3: Academic Day
This is a day dedicated to lectures that will seek to update local private sector and public sector specialists on the latest guidelines and treatment of female pelvic floor disorders. Here again, this programme is currently being finalized but there remains an opportunity for the trade to forward proposals on presentations that could be relevant to and would add value to the planned programme.
Closing Date for submissions: Monday 4 March 2019
At this point we plan to invite 2 international speakers and would be looking for sponsorship of these speakers from the trade. We will be sending out a full prospectus in the next 2 weeks which will outline all sponsorship opportunities.
As you know we rely heavily on sponsorship from the trade. Our objective is to deliver a clinically balanced and relevant meeting to our local Gynaecologists, Urologists, Registrars and Physiotherapists who have an interest in the very important field of Urogynaecology.
We look forward to working together with all members of the trade in an open and balanced manner in order for every stakeholder to benefit from this key academic meeting.
