18 May 2022 | 6:00PM-8:00PM

Topic 1: Update on the management of sexually transmitted infections with Dr Nicholas Comninos

Topic 2:  Polycystic Ovary Syndrome – best practice management in primary care with Dr Rebecca South

This Masterclass will bring together new evidence-informed guidance on two commonly encountered areas of primary care. First, we will hear from Dr Nicholas Comninos, a Sexual Health Physician at Family Planning NSW, Staff Specialist at Western Sydney Sexual Health Centre and Clinical Lecturer at Westmead Clinical School, The University of Sydney.

Nick specialises in the management of Sexually Transmitted Infections and HIV and has interests in HPV-related lower genital tract disease and reproductive health. He will provide an overview of the latest guidance on STIs, including new guidance around the management of chlamydia.

Dr Rebecca South will lead a presentation on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition experienced by between 8% to 13% of women who are of reproductive age. Rebecca is a GP and clinical lead at Inner West Women's Health, and previously worked at Family Planning NSW as a clinical educator for over a decade. Her presentation will reinforce all you need to know about the diagnosis and management of PCOS and provide tips on communicating the immediate and long-term effects of this common health condition.

These presentations will be followed by an interactive Q and A with both clinicians.
