Mission and Vision

The main aim of the PCH-SIG is to promote interest, evidence based practice and collaborative research endeavours between clinicians and allied health professionals in the areas of infertility and lifestyle factors that are related to infertility including obesity and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It is anticipated that this PCH-SIG will facilitate evidence based interventions and community and multidisciplinary partnerships.

The common goal of members should be that of assisting men and women to achieve optimal health prior to and following conception. At this stage and for the purpose of this SIG, pre-conception health is restricted to patients with infertility (sub-fertility) while we develop models of care relevant for all couples planning a pregnancy.
