Course Outline

Childbirth is a huge event for mothers, very few have significant complications during pregnancy, labour, and in the post-partum period; however, if they do become unwell they need to receive the same standard of care as patients that are not pregnant.  In the most recent Confidential Enquiry into Maternal Death report there were 261 maternal deaths from 2006–2008 from causes directly or indirectly related to pregnancy.

Complementary to this, in 2007 there were 513 women pregnant or recently pregnant women admitted (260/100,000). Of the 418 recently pregnant, there was an obstetric reason for the admission (72%). Eighty percent had a live birth and 65% of their babies were not admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit.

Aim of the Course
  • To learn the principles of good teamwork in caring for the sick mother with critical illness
Objectives of the Course
  • To be aware of the standards required from staff managing the unwell mother with acute or chronic disease in pregnancy
  • To be aware of human factors impeding good obstetric care with a deteriorating patient
  • To assist as part of the team management of a typical scenario of deterioration and critical illness as a simulated scenario
  • To participate in the multi-disciplinary team providing acute care in the trauma in pregnancy situation
Relevant For

This course is relevant for obstetricians, midwives, anaesthetists and intensive care clinicians (e.g. nurses and clinicians involved with the critical care of an obstetric patient).
