The BSGE is running diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy workshops on November 23rd and 24th. The one-day courses will take place at the Training and Technology Centre, KARL STORZ Endoscopy in  Slough.

The course aims to enable delegates to develop their hysteroscopy skills, both diagnostic and operative and to become familiar with operative hysteroscopic equipment. It is suitable for trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology who are registered or who plan to register for either the ATSM in Benign Gynaecological Surgery: Hysteroscopy or Benign Abdominal Surgery: open and laparoscopic. It is also designed for consultants, staff grade, staff doctors, trust doctors, associate Specialists, nurse hysteroscopists and GPs wishing to enhance their hysteroscopy skills.

The course organisers Mary Connor and Stephen Burrell said:

‘The workshop will be in two parts including a rotation around a series of stations using models and computer-simulated procedures. The topics to be covered include diagnostic hysteroscopy for developing camera skills and hand-eye co-ordination; endometrial polypectomy using mechanical instruments with fine scissors, graspers and hysteroscopic tissue shavers; global endometrial ablation using non- hysteroscopic devices.

The other part of the workshop will consist of a review of case studies and endometrial/fibroid resection skills.’
