The 10th seminar of The European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health occupied the attention of many gynaecologists and other healthcare professionals, so that the number of participants was 370 with 59% coming from Serbia and a further 5% from surrounding countries.
The seminar was entitled ‘’Unwanted pregnancy or abortion’’ with the intention to increase knowledge and reduce barriers to the provision of modern contraception to women and couples.
The scientific programme comprised two plenary sessions, eight workshops, two free communication sessions and three sponsored symposia.
During the plenary sessions the topics relevant for current contraceptive guidance promotion were presented. Special attention was paid to the interactive parts of the seminar. Therefore, workshops were designed to enable the exchange of ideas and professional experience, as well as to improve the contraceptive prescribing practice of participants. To facilitate this, there was simultaneous translation into Serbian.
We hope that the participants were satisfied with the social programme, as several different events were organised.Sadly, there were only 19 evaluation sheets returned, but from those that were, the feedback was positive.
Finally, we would like to thank all our colleagues who helped with the planning and organisation including those that helped with registration.
