163784 - Obstetrics Review and Case Presentations

  • : Online


This event will explore review new trends and interventions in obstetrics care, including case presentations and discussion.

Relevance to General Practice

GP in rural practice are challenged with emergency situations when dealing with delivering babies in rural or remote practice. 

As a GP obstetrician, the challenge is to refer high-risk patients to an appropriate centre in a timely fashion and develop and maintain the skills to adequately deal with whatever else occurs. In addition, there are well-recognized aspects of rural populations that make them a higher risk as a group. These factors include higher rate of Aboriginality, remote locations and poor access to health services and, in some areas, poor socioeconomic indicators. Given these challenges, it is worthwhile to look at what is happening in a rural GP obstetric practice.
