Hosted by the Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne, the theme of the  2019 Australian Society for Psycho-Social Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ASPOG) conference  is ‘Across the Life Cycle’ focusing on diverse psychosocial aspects of women’s reproductive and sexual health. This will include clinical updates and cutting edge research across a range of disciplines. 

We invite obstetricians, gynaecologists, general practitioners, nurses, midwives, sexual health providers, allied health professionals, trainees and women’s sexual and reproductive health researchers to present and attend the conference.
