Maternal Medicine, also known as Obstetric Medicine, is a very important part of obstetric and general medicine practice. It covers
the medical complications and conditions occurring in pregnancy. A significant proportion of maternal morbidity and mortality has one or more underlying medical conditions, and in developed countries medical disorders such as cardiac disease have emerged to become leading causes of maternal mortality.
Women with pre‐existing medical conditions often have concerns on how the condition affects their babies and pregnancy and vice
versa, and a major clinical challenge we face is managing and counselling these mothers. This challenge is not unique to obstetricians, but also applies to physicians and general practitioners who look after women with medical issues who may be pregnant, or are contemplating pregnancy. Indeed, women's healthcare in pregnancy, in this era of multidisciplinary and multi‐professional care, is relevant to all healthcare disciplines including anesthesia, pharmacy, nursing and midwifery.
This will be our 8th course in Maternal Medicine. We have 3 international faculty in addition to our local experts contributing to an
exciting scientific programme featuring the latest evidence based management of medical disorders in pregnancy. Interactive case
studies and discussions, which have enjoyed much positive feedback in previous courses, will continue to be part of the course.
