Relevance to General Practice
Pregnancy is largely a physiological process but many medical, social and psychological influences can impact on its outcome.
Since it represents the beginning of a family, optimum care during and after pregnancy will ensure the best environment for this basic unit of our society. There is a complexity of interacting problems which can impinge on the health of a pregnant woman and her newborn baby and a team approach involving general practitioners, specialists, nurses and others is required to ensure the optimal delivery of care.
This course is designed to assist in the co-ordination of that care.
