Description

The incidence of multiple pregnancy is rising, secondary to the use of assisted reproductive techniques. Multiple pregnancy is associated with increased maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity. More than half of multiple pregnancies deliver before 37 weeks’ gestation. Many clinicians who are confident when managing complicated singleton pregnancies feel uneasy caring for women with multiple pregnancy.A survey has shown that the level of familiarity with the NICE guideline on “Antenatal Management of Multiple Pregnancy” is poor and implementation suboptimal. It will provide a comprehensive update on the management of multiple pregnancy and all sessions will have dedicated time for audience interaction.The update of the NICE multiple pregnancy guideline is planned on the 4 September 2019, and its recommendations will be presented at the RCOG meeting.Learning ObjectivesAfter attending the meeting, you will:Be familiar with the NICE guidance update on both the antenatal and intrapartum management of multiple pregnancyUnderstand the role of the midwife and sonographer in the Specialist Multiple Pregnancy Clinic.Be up-to-date with new advances in the prenatal diagnosis and management of complicated multiple pregnancyIncrease the level of knowledge involved in the care of these womenPromote a multidisciplinary approach to the management of women with multiple pregnancyGain expertise and confidence in managing multiple pregnancyAppreciate the roles and interaction of the multidisciplinary team membersWho should attend?Trainees and Consultants in O&GGPsMidwivesSonographersSAS DoctorsCourse organisersProfessor Asma Khalil MRCOG, LondonProfessor Basky Thilaganathan FRCOG, LondonHonorary Director of ConferencesMr Philip Tooz-Hobson FRCOG, BirminghamHonorary Deputy Director of ConferencesMr Andrew Sizer FRCOG, Shrewsbury
