The Art Of Caring…
On behalf of the organising committee I would like to extend a warm welcome to join us for the annual scientific meeting of the Fertility Society of Australia in Melbourne, Victoria.
The local organising committee has chosen “the ART of caring” as the theme for this year’s FSA meeting. Assisted reproductive technologies are about more than achieving the highest success rates. For many patients, the way in which their dream is fulfilled is another very important determinant of success.
With this theme in mind, we have put together what we hope will be an exciting program. Some of the sessions will also focus on aspects of fertility treatment that we generally hear less about, such as “When couples can’t have sex, is IVF the only answer?” and “Does our care for IVF patients stop when they are pregnant?”
To deliver on the goods, we have invited many distinguished international and national presenters who will undoubtedly stimulate vigorous debate at the meeting.
Of course, as a conference destination Melbourne needs no introduction. Melbourne is the home of the ultra-modern Melbourne Convention Centre with its ability to host more than 10,000 delegates. It is in easy walking distance from Southbank and the CBD with fine dining and luxury shopping options galore. Melbourne is of course also known for its cultural life with a plethora of art galleries, theatres and jazz clubs to choose from. A bit further afield are the Yarra Valley and the Mornington Peninsula with world-class wineries and craft breweries to enjoy in a stunning setting. And then there is of course the best coffee in the country!
It will be a delight to welcome you all in Melbourne in September 2018. Make sure to pencil it in your diary!
