Managing Birth Variations and Complications 2-Day Workshop
Dates and venues for 2014 are:
- Daylesford 28-30 March (see * note below under Program)
- Ballina 23-25 May
- Noosa Heads 25-27 July
- Blue Mountains 12-14 September
- Brisbane 17-19 October
This 2-day workshop is interactive and participants will practise skills, discuss issues and share knowledge. The focus is on developing a holistic and situational approach to dealing with variations and complications. There is time for relaxing, networking and enjoying the company and support of other midwives.
At the end of this workshop, participants will understand the physiology of common variations and complications; have a ‘tool kit’ of skills and techniques that can be used to manage variations and complications; understand the legal, ethical and professional issues relating to midwifery management of variations and complications.
Note: While other birthworkers are welcome to attend other CAPERS events, this workshop is for midwives and student midwives.
