Here is your invitation to our upcoming OSC CPD Activities that you won’t want to miss out on!

First up, we have a CPD Activity on the 5th October 2022, at the lovely Adelaide Pavilion. As we strive to improve care and outcomes for women and their babies, our theme, “Sharpen Your Skills” aims to take you on a journey of innovative perinatal research and care. We promise there will be something for everyone.

Next we have our Cardiopulmonary Training session at the Healthy Living Precinct on Thursday 13th October 2022. This 2-hour course has been designed for those who prefer to complete the CPR theory and assessment in a full face to face training and assessment session with no online components. At completion of the course, you will receive a nationally recognised certificate in HLTAID009 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. The course is RACGP approved.

Then we are heading to Port Lincoln and will host an evening CPD Activity at the Port Lincoln Hotel on Wednesday 26th October 2022. ‘Even Miracles Take a Little Time – Fertility & Preconception Conversations and as always there is more!’ We will have excellent Presenters to walk us through the latest research and clear advice to take to your antenatal women.

We are excited that our trip to the Eyre Peninsula will be followed by a CPD Activity on Friday 4th November 2022 at the Barossa Chateau, Lyndoch. Again our amazing Presenters will talk on all things antenatal. Keep posted and registrations will open soon.

Finally we are looking forward to a trip to Mt Gambier! Join us at The Barn on Wednesday 16th November 2022. A lively engaging time will be had by all! Registrations for this CPD Activity will also be opened soon.

As always, our newsletters aim to keep you informed on the latest news, changes, updates, special announcements and talk all things obstetric!

From my team, our Board of Directors and myself, keep happy and healthy!

Pre-eclampsia remains a leading cause of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity. It is a pregnancy-specific disease characterised by de-novo development of concurrent hypertension and proteinuria, sometimes progressing into a multiorgan cluster of varying clinical features. And there will be more interesting and thought-provoking speakers included in the Program!
