The BMFMS is actively involved in the organisation of a number of meetings which are relevant to the different ATSMs offered by the RCOG. These meetings strive to be of a high standard and complement the relevant ATSM curricula.
Maternal Medicine and Maternal Critical Care: Medical Complications in Pregnancy
6-8 March 2013
This course is run jointly with the RCOG. It is recognised for the theoretical component of the ‘Maternal Medicine’ Advanced Training Skills Module ATSM. This course is valid for three years, and must be completed prior to completion of the practical component of the ATSM.
The course will also be of value to clinicians with a maternal medicine and high-risk obstetric practice. The confidential enquiries into maternal death have repeatedly highlighted substandard care of critically ill women having a significant contribution to their death and included worrying comments about lack of facilities for seriously ill women in maternity units. Some staff failed to recognise and act on the common signs of critical illness, particularly those not related to obstetric practice such as pyrexia, tachypnoea and tachycardia.
The course is structured to address current maternal medicine and critical care issues across all medical subspecialities with specific relevance to obstetrics. The course has a format of lectures and breakout group work to address topical maternal medicine issues.
