  • 10-04-2018

IB International Workshop 2018: A new approach to nursing in fertility’ is the international congress due to be held on 11th and 12th May in the Instituto Bernabeu auditorium, Alicante. The event will bring together professionals from the field of nursing and experts in caring for reproductive medicine patients and, in doing so, share and explore knowledge that improves global care for these patients.

The official language for the 'IB International Workshop 2018: A new approach to nursing in fertility' will be English. The event will be divided up into five sessions in which experts from the different areas at Instituto Bernabeu and experts from international hospitals will participate. The workshop will launch on the subject of progress in assisted reproduction (New Feats) with a presentation given by the Medical Director of Instituto Bernabeu and gynaecologist, Dr Rafael Bernabeu, along with Nurse Virginia Alarcón. The presentation will cover progress in implantation failure. Additional presentations will focus on egg donation and genetic analysis of the patient and of the embryo.

The second session will cover personalisation of patient care (Individualising Patient Care) whilst a workshop on high-definition ultrasound scans will be given in the third part of the event. Emotional support is an integral part of the care given to reproductive medicine patients at Instituto Bernabeu and, for this reason, the fourth session (Emotional Support) will cover psychological care. The last section of the international gathering (Holistic Patient Care) will concentrate on overall patient healthcare.

Training and furthering understanding are one of the fundamental pillars of Instituto Bernabeu and, as such, it regularly holds events and training courses that help it to remain at the forefront of progress in reproductive medicine. There are 118 available places on the international congress. The registration period is now open and can be completed using the following link:
