A cháirde, Doctors for Life are delighted to announce that Dr William Lile, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist with Abortion Pill Reversal Network and Christa Brown, Director of Medical Impact, both from USA, will present the most up to date information and training for healthcare professionals on Abortion Pill Reversal(APR) at our forthcoming conference in Santry. Within weeks of the legislation for abortion coming into place we had enquiries about reversal. We know women are being pressurised into having an abortion in the first place so it’s no surprise that they may change their mind and regret the decision very soon after taking the first pill. With this in mind we are hosting an educational meeting for Midwives, Nurses, Doctors, Pharmacists and other Allied Healthcare Professionals who wish to learn more about giving advice and professional help to those who have changed their minds about abortion. The conference is clinical and of benefit to healthcare professionals. Date & Time: Saturday, 29th February, 2020 2pm to 5pm Venue: Crowne Plaza Hotel, Northwood, Santry (buses available from Dublin Airport) Cost: €30 Please email [email protected] if you wish to attend.
