ESC/WHO Teach the teachers course

Belgrade, Serbia

The ESC/WHO Teach the teachers course was held in Belgrade, 24-25 March 2017.


We organised, in collaboration with WHO, a Teach the Teachers Course, which took place in Belgrade from March 24th-25th. 15 Participants from Eastern European countries (Albania, Bosnia, Herzegovina , Bulgaria, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia) were invited. The contents of the course added more specialised and updated knowledge to the available WHO teaching course ( Participants were obliged to agree that they will provide further training with the ESC course tool and the WHO teaching tools within their country. Some have already started to update their country specific guidelines. 

The evaluation after the course demonstrated, that participants felt that the course and the material provided not only new information, but also improved their understanding of benefits, risks and side effects of contraceptive methods.

With the new skills, they have a better background how to counsel and act also in more difficult situations with severe complications or in women with medical conditions. The practical case study workshops in small groups were highly appreciated. The teaching sessions about intrauterine contraception will be presented again at our seminar in St Petersburg.

The ESC-TTT slides will be available on our homepage from the end of June 2017. This self-study concept allows all ESC members to use our tool for self-training and update their knowledge around contraceptive methods.
