Maternal death can often result from medical rather than obstetric complications. The quality of care provided in these scenarios is crucial to the outcome. These sessions will help you to build your knowledge and understanding of how to manage unwell pregnant women in your care. These sessions have been developed in partnership with the charity Wellbeing of Women – which is seeking to advance cures and treatment for women’s health. This online medical problems in pregnancy programme consists of a number of sessions. Learning sessions take around 20 to 30 minutes each to complete. Topics covered include the physiology of pregnancy, prescribing safely in pregnancy, physiology of pregnancy, clinical assessment of the pregnant patient and communication and co-ordination of care for the complex obstetric patient. Sessions covering a range of common and important clinical scenarios (e.g. sepsis and thromboembolism) and number of sessions on medical disorders complicating pregnancy complete the programme.
