Pre-obstetric Emergency Training (POET)
Event date: 17 – 18 June 2024
Venue: Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG), 29-31 Ellesmere Street, Swinton, Manchester, M27 0LA
Summary of event:
The POET integrated on-line and ‘hands on’ course helps practitioners identify and manage a range of time-critical obstetric emergencies specifically in the pre-hospital setting. It provides a structured examination and assessment technique as an aid to determining what treatment should be provided before transport, as well as when and how urgently transport should be initiated. Using a combination of simulations, skills and practical hands on teaching, candidates will leave the course with the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to save the mother and foetus in life threatening circumstances. Second edition POET has been updated with the latest best practice guidelines and clinical practice whilst having education at the heart of the course, to ensure maximum learning potential. Delivered by obstetric and prehospital experts, teaching is of the highest standard.
