Management of patients with an impaired ovarian reserve or poor ovarian response (POR) to exogenous gonadotropin stimulation has challenged reproductive specialists for years. Apart from the limited understanding of its pathophysiology, there is wide heterogeneity in defining POR and overall disappointing outcomes in assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles.
The First POSEIDON’s World Conference will dissect the new POSEIDON criteria as a means to improve the management of patients exposed to assisted reproductive technology. The new criteria enable discussion of novel approaches catered specifically to patients with low prognosis during IVF, thereby offering better tools to optimise IVF success rates.
The programme will engage renowned international experts with vast clinical experience in constantly evolving subjects. The programme aims to impart specific knowledge with focus on changing concepts or practices.
With this conference, the participants will get acquainted with the state-of-the-art definition of impaired response to ovarian stimulation, comprehend the new low prognosis concept and its application in clinical practice, and individualise and manage women with expected or unexpected prognosis to ART as per the POSEIDON classification.
The program is intended for clinicians, embryologists, andrologists, scientists, and managers working in ART who wish to update their knowledge of advanced techniques and scientific innovations and understand best practices using evidence-based models of care.
This programme will be submitted for CME accreditation to EACCME® (European Accreditation Council for Continuing for Medical Education).
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalentnumber of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM . Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applications.
This programme is designed in partnership with the Portuguese Society of Reproductive Medicine.
The idea of the founding of the Portuguese Society of Reproductive Medicine arose in 1975 during an informal conversation between Portuguese specialists participating in the IFFS (Federation of Fertility and Sterility Societies) meeting in Buenos Aires. It formally materialised with the publication of its statutes in Diário da República in 1978.
According to this legal text, the SPMR has as its objective the scientific and technological development in the field of reproductive medicine, seeking to incentivise basic and applied research.
