CRISIS MANAGEMENT IN OBSTETRIC ANAESTHESIA AND NEONATAL RESUSCITATION
Due to the ongoing uncertainty around social distancing and travel restrictions we have not yet set any dates for 2021. We hope to run courses later in the year. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
This course will provide anaesthetists with a thorough review of the practical management of various obstetric anaesthetic emergencies as well as the fundamentals of neonatal resuscitation. The course aims to provide participants with the opportunity to improve their knowledge, technical and team-working skills in the management of these emergencies.
Course faculty includes anaesthetists, neonatologists and paediatric emergency physicians.
- Full day workshop (08:15-17:30) covering neonatal resuscitation and various obstetric anaesthetic emergencies such as:
- Maternal cardiac arrest
- Maternal haemorrhage
- The difficult obstetric airway
- Educational modalities include a variety of presentations, skills stations and fully immersive simulation scenarios.
- Endorsed by ANZCA, meeting the standards for recognition of the Cardiac Arrest Emergency Response Activity.
- Held in the new state of the art Sunshine Simulation Centre and run by anaesthetists and neonatologists experienced in simulation.
- Fully catered with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
- Limited to only 8 participants to maximise ‘hands on’ time.
- Consultant anaesthetists, especially the “occasional” obstetric anaesthetist
- Anaesthetic trainees who have completed Introductory training
- GP anaesthetists
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT:
- On completion of this course, participants in the ANZCA CPD Program may claim:
- The Cardiac Arrest Emergency Response Activity in their CPD Portfolio
- 8 CPD points (4 hours) in the “Knowledge and Skills”
