What do you do?
I am a Registrar in Sexual and Reproductive Health at University Hospitals Bristol. My particular area of interest is abortion care and I am currently continuing my research into VTE risk assessment within a Pregnancy Advisory Service. I am also a member of the British Society of Abortion Care Providers.
Which sessions are you eager to attend at congress in Budapest?
I am eager to attend the ‘LARC for adolescents’ lecture and hear which contraceptive strategies have improved LARC usage and continuation rates within this patient cohort. I am also interested to hear the findings of the ‘Virtual Contraceptive Consultation (ViC) online platform’ and how this distance learning could ensure that evidence-based and rights-based guidance is delivered.
