The ARIMGSAS Women’s Health Workshop is a one-day workshop run by Dr Laura Papillo, who has worked in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Box Hill Hospital and Mercy Hospital for Women.

The morning and early afternoon program comprises theoretical presentation and case discussions on gynaecological topics including:

  • contraceptive methods
  • cervical cancer and screening
  • irregular vaginal bleeding
  • menopause management

The later portion of the afternoon comprises practical sessions on:

  • sensitive history taking
  • sensitive physical examination
  • taking a Pap smear
  • performing a bimanual examination
  • performing a breast examination

There will be opportunities to discuss questions about best practice management of gynaecological conditions and questions relating to taking a sensitive history and conducting sensitive examinations.

It is required that all participants complete the predisposing activity prior to attending the active learning module. Please download and print the predisposing activity, read and complete each section, and bring it with you on the day. Your work will not need to be submitted, but it will be checked for completion at registration.
