Dr Jessica Lowe | Abnormal vaginal bleeding - a structured approach

Dr Sally Sweeney | Optimising preconception care including genetic carrier screening

Dr Jessica Lowe, a gynaecologist with a special interest in menstrual disorders at Royal North Shore Hospital, will provide a structured approach to the diagnosis and management of abnormal vaginal bleeding using a case-based framework. This will be followed by practical guidance from Dr Sally Sweeney for optimising preconception care including an in-depth look at genetic carrier counselling and screening in light of the 2019 RANZCOG recommendations.  The presentations will be followed by an interactive Q&A session facilitated by Clinical A/Professor Deborah Bateson.
