Dear friends, we invite you to join us in the "3rd Baltic Colposcopy Conference" Dates: Feb 26 - 27, 2021 Venue: Park Inn By Radisson Kaunas, Kaunas, Lithuania Conference Organizers: • Lithuanian Association of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Section of Cervix Pathology and Colposcopy • European Federation of Colposcopy Target Audience: Conference is intended for obstetricians and gynaecologists, medical biologists, laboratory medicine doctors, family doctors and other specialities doctors, residents and students. Course Description: All three Baltic countries have one of the highest cervical cancer incidences in Europe. Recently there have been many developments in the field of cervical cancer prevention. We have effective vaccines, HPV tests, diagnostic devices etc. We have screening programmes that enable us to make further steps in diagnosis and treatment of cervical pathology and to reduce the risk of illness. Nevertheless, at some point colposcopy is a very important step in the pyramid and poor colposcopy may compromise all the prevention and screening tests done. Effective collaboration and regular focused meetings are a good opportunity to come together and discuss common problems, training guidelines and clinical performance quality standards. Lithuania still has challenges in performing and training the colposcopy. Training, algorithms, guidelines and evidence based medicine may help us in a shared interest in reducing the burden of avoidable disease. The exchange of the experience between specialists of the three Baltic countries and international experts in the field of cervical cancer prevention is an important step towards improvement of the colposcopy service in the Baltic region. Hope that Pre-Conference Basic Course on Colposcopy will help us to make one more step in improving the care of woman in cervical screening programs. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
