Coming up: Contraception – future directions

Clinical Sex Women

New contraception options for women are on the horizon here in Australia.

Well-known sexual health expert Dr Terri Foran will update us on the latest developments in this area so we can be on the front foot when patients ask us about them, which they inevitably do.

This update on 13 April will not only include information about the latest refinements of the oral contraceptive pill but also the new options for the increasingly popular long acting reversible contraception, such as depot injections, vaginal rings, and even new “frameless” IUDs.

Allergic and Systemic Skin Disease – Clinical A/Prof Kurt Gebauer

Oral Cavity Cancer – Clinical A/Prof Carsten Palme

Oral cancer rates are climbing steadily, they are of the most common cancers in the world. The majority are linked to reversible risk factors and many, if discovered and referred earlier, can be better treated. The proportion associated with HPV also seems to be growing!
