Course description

According to WHO, endometriosis affects around 10% of women and girls of reproductive age. ART nurses and midwives often care for this patient group, despite the fact that much of the focus in the fertility clinic is on IVF. This comprehensive Campus course explores the diagnosis and clinical management of endometriosis. Speakers represent the diversity of medical disciplines often involved, including surgeons, medical doctors, nurses, midwives, and patients. Course learning styles will vary, from lectures on imaging and surgical and medical interventions, to take home messages for daily practice. Round-table discussions will provide a platform for interactive discussions on the impact of endometriosis on quality of life and sexuality.
