About ASPOG

The strength of the Society is its multi-disciplinary membership and its informal, supportive meetings that foster interest in communication, counselling and psychosocial aspects of health. The Society welcomes health workers from all disciplines, eg. Medicine, midwifery, social work, social sciences, nursing etc.

The Society holds a national congress that moves yearly between States within Australia and sometimes off-shore.  The topics debated reflect the Society’s breadth of interests, including psychosocial aspects of puberty, fertility, contraception, pregnancy, menopause and men’s reproductive health.  The congress attracts continuing education points for GP’s and other medical specialists.

Why is the Society relevant today?

The pace of technological development in obstetrics, gynaecology and reproductive medicine has created an urgent need for greater awareness of the psychosocial and ethical implications of these advances.

At the same time, our understanding of the psychosocial and psychosexual aspects of women’s health is constantly expanding and changing.

The need for a society such as ASPOG is even greater today than when it was first founded in 1973, by Adelaide obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Roger Wurm.

As a member of the International Society for Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ASPOG keeps members up to date with international developments by facilitating exchange of information with sister societies in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North and South America and the Pacific Rim.
