This online course is a comprehensive program covering different aspects of Maternal Medicine. This course aims to provide a system-wise approach to managing medical disorders in pregnant women.
Irrespective of the place and nature of practice, we are all likely to come across women who present with or develop a medical complication in pregnancy. Medical disorders affect pregnancy outcomes and equally, pregnancy can impact the medical condition, making management of such patients challenging. There has been very important research, newer medications as well as technological advances that have changed the way we manage women with these conditions during pregnancy. The increasing number of women who now can become pregnant despite having medical conditions and the appearance of new infections makes it important for us to refresh our knowledge. Maternal medicine is a huge area and we have focussed on the common medical problems, which every obstetrician will face as well as the more challenging but not so common conditions All this along with increasing awareness and expectations in our patients and rising medicolegal issues emphasizes the need for us to stay abreast of recent developments and upgrade our knowledge in maternal medicine.
This course will benefit all obstetricians and help them provide appropriate and safe care for women who have medical problems in pregnancy. Physicians who are involved in providing care for pregnant women with medical problems will also benefit. This course will help any doctor keen on upgrading their knowledge in maternal medicine.
To give the participating doctors a holistic multidisciplinary understanding and approach to maternal medicine, the team includes a mix of two obstetricians and a consultant physician. All three faculty in the team have vast experience in the practice of maternal medicine.
