As a result of collaboration between the new BC Centre for Vulvar Health, the UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the UBC Division of Continuing Professional Development, we are excited to announce the first BC conference addressing vulvar health! We expect a strong regional interest in this unique conference as vulvovaginal disorders are one of the top reasons women seek help from their Family Doctors!
This one day conference was planned with Womens’ Health Care Providers in mind (Primary Care Providers, Gynaecologists, Nurse Practitioners) and will endeavour to provide education in vulvovaginal disorders. Areas that will be addressed include: vulvar skin conditions, urogenital symptoms of menopause, sexual health concerns, vulvar pain conditions, and recurrent vulvovaginal infections. The focus will be on practical diagnosis and management.
The conference format will be a mixture of 30 minute plenary lectures and small group interactive sessions. The breakout sessions will include introductory and advanced sessions in vulvar health.</div> </div> <div class="views-field views-field-field-agenda"> <div class="field-content">
