While the majority of Australian women will go to their GP for referral to a specialist during pregnancy, that is often not possible for those living in rural and remote communities. In those areas, the role of delivering babies often falls in the hands of the local GP-Obstetrician. It is therefore essential that they have the knowledge and skill required to deal with a number of situations they may face during care of a obstetrics patient.
This one day workshop will use a variety of teaching methods such as small group case discussions, procedural skills stations and interactive lectures covering a range of topics for rural obstetrics.
Learning Objectives1. Identify and explain available methods, and the states regulation and requirements, for termination of pregnancy. 2. Utilise latest guidelines and treatment targets for gestational diabetes. 3. Assess and determine the best management for a range of antenatal emergencies. 4. Demonstrate techniques to resolve intrapartum and postpartum problems.
