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.
We also have an annual conference which in 2015 will be held in London. More details can be found here http://www.bmfmsconference.ukevents.org/
In 2015 the BMFMS, in conjunction with the RCOG, is running courses in Management of the Labour Ward and Fetal Medicine and Advanced Antenatal Practice
This course is suitable for any clinician who spends a significant amount of time on the labour ward, or has a major interest in risk management and clinical governance, including how to run obstetric skills and drills training. The programme includes a variety of authoritative speakers with ample time for discussion, debate and networking.
This meeting is recognised for and aims to cover the theoretical component of the ‘Advanced Labour Ward Practice’ and ‘Labour Ward Lead’ Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs), which are undertaken as a ST6/7. The courses are valid for three years, and must be completed prior to completion of the practical component of the ATSMs. Those undertaking the ‘Labour Ward Lead’ ATSM must also complete the ‘Advanced Labour Ward Practice’ ATSM, and should therefore attend all 4 days.
Fetal Medicine and Advanced Antenatal Practice 22nd-24th June 2015
The Fetal Medicine and Advanced Antenatal Care courses are suitable for consultants with an interest in antenatal ultrasound as well as those training in Fetal Medicine as a subspecialty or for the ‘Fetal Medicine’ or the ‘Advanced Antenatal Practice’ Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs).
This course is valid for three years, and must be completed prior to completion of the practical component of the ATSM. It also supports the obstetric RCOG intermediate ultrasound modules.
Monday 22 – Tuesday 23 June 2015, Advanced Antenatal Care – a problem-based approach
Tuesday 23 - Wednesday 24 June 2015, Fetal Medicine – a problem-based approach
There will be pre-course material provided to allow for greater interactive learning on the day. Case-based discussions will be used to review advanced ultrasound techniques and common clinical dilemmas, as well as rare conditions.
