Event Details

Annual Women’s Health Medical Conference – Barbados

“From Prenatal to Postpartum”

3W’s Pavilion, UWI Cavehill, Barbados

Saturday Oct 7 to Sunday Oct 8, 2017

9AM-4.30PM

 

 Health is one of the most important areas in which women encounter risks that are different from those faced by men, and they have a central role both in health services as well as in their communities and families. Of fundamental and extreme urgency are 1) maternal mortality and adolescent pregnancy and 2) Access to sexual and reproductive health. (Michelle Bachelet former Executive Director of UN Women, at the “Women, Health and Development conference in Asunción, Paraguay, 12 December 2011.)

The annual women’s health medical conference provides an opportunity to focus on women’s health issues in Barbados, the Caribbean and beyond. The health of women determines the health of the nation and special attention must be given to maternal health.

Pregnancy care consists of prenatal (before birth) and postpartum (after birth) healthcare for expectant mothers. It involves treatments and trainings to ensure a healthy pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and labor and delivery for mom and baby. 

Postpartum care is an important determinant of quality health care outcomes for women giving birth. Since medical complications can occur after a woman has given birth, postpartum visits can address any adverse effects that giving birth had on a woman’s body, such as persistent bleeding, inadequate iron levels, blood pressure, pain, emotional changes, and infections. For example, heavy bleeding can be an indicator of a retained placenta, uterine atony, lacerations, hematoma, or coagulation disorders.

This CME will explore the broad spectrum of prenatal to post-partum care and will include a mixture of lectures and workshops on topics including: 

  • Obstetric emergencies: Shoulder dystocia, hemorrhage, undiagnosed breech
  • Alternative positions in active birth
  • Depression
  • Stress and pregnancy
  • CTG interpretation
  • Ultrasound in pregnancy
  • Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Incontinence and Pelvic Dysfunction
  • Chronic disease and pregnancy
  • Fertility issues
  • Management of fibroids in pregnancy
  • More topics to be announced

The full programme will be announced at a later date.

Physicians, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals are welcome to attend this event. CPE credit will be available.
