Event description

Description


This course provides students with an overview of the challenges around caring for mothers and babies with a critical illness. Ways to prevent the devastating outcomes of critical illness in pregnancy, labour and the puerperium will be explored. The role of the midwife in early recognition of critical illness of childbearing women will be explored in order to identify the need for a rapid response and /or timely referral to the multidisciplinary healthcare team to achieve safe, high quality care based on current evidence. The need for a knowledgeable and skilled multidisciplinary team who is well rehearsed in the treatment of maternal and neonatal emergency response will explored. Students will have the opportunity to practice skills of monitoring, assessing and caring for the woman and baby with a critical illness, in a simulated environment.
