Choose Your Workshops

The pre-conference workshop programme on 30th & 31st August 2022 has something for every health professional. 

It has long been the tradition that prior to the formal Biennial General Meeting there is a two-day programme of technical workshops aimed at improving hands-on skills, learning new techniques and networking with peers from across the Pacific, and the 14th Biennial Conference in Samoa 2022, is no exception to the rule. 

This year we have a number of excellent options for you to consider, and we’re certain the hard part will be choosing only two workshops. 

PEMNet will be operating over two days with a specific emphasis on Training the Trainer. These workshops are an introduction to the newly revised second edition of the popular PEMNet programme, aimed at those who will be tasked with rolling out the programme in their own country in the near future. 

The OASIS workshop is also a very practical workshop programme focused on developing surgical skills and working through the importance of the WHO’s OASIS checklist. This workshop is most appropriate for those who regularly perform surgical duties as it will involve polishing suturing skills and practising other surgical skills. 

For midwives the excellent Midwifery Leadership Workshop presented by Professor Caroline Homer from the Burnet Institute will be as inspirational as it is practical.

Current Members Can Vote!

Are you ready to vote in new leaders of the Pacific Society for Reproductive Health, in Samoa? 

If you are a current financial member of the PSRH then you can vote at the Biennial General Meeting, but unfortunately this opportunity is only open to current financial members. 

Do you have an up-to-date membership?

Membership email reminders will be posted out to members this week, along with a proxy form for those who wish to vote but cannot attend the meeting in person. 

This is an important time in our Society’s lifetime,  as we gather together post-COVID, we have the opportunity to place good leaders into position onto the board and into office so that we are marching strong and united into the future. 

This is the time to make a difference in Sexual and Reproductive Health in the Pacific.

But only those who are paid-up members of the Society are entitled to vote, so if your membership has lapsed please  pay the invoice that arrives in your email box this week, or go and select an appropriate membership so you are ready to either send your proxy vote with a friend (1 per person) or place it yourself at the 14th Biennial General Meeting of the PSRH on Saturday 2 September 2022.
