Gynaecology, Obstetrics, and Reproductive Medicine in Daily Practice is a unique publication aimed at the non-academic practicing gynaecologist, and students alike. The papers included in the book are written by invited speakers who attended the 15th Congress of Infertility, Gynaecology and Obstetrics. All the information is important to both doctors in training as well as qualified gynaecologists. Certain sections are interesting to fertility specialists as well as midwives. This is a useful tool to refresh and enhance skills in the fields of gynaecology, urogynaecology, obstetrics and reproductive medicine. The emphasis has been put on accomplishments achieved as opposed to ongoing controversies in the field.
