Complex pregnancies focus for summit
Abu Dhabi, July 2, 2012
More than 130 leading obstetricians, gynaecologists, midwives and other health care professionals from the UAE attended a recent conference in Abu Dhabi on medical problems in pregnancy.
The participants at Corniche Hospital’s fourth annual Obstetric Medicine Conference examined the latest research and technical advances in the screening and monitoring of women with complicated pregnancies.
Topics that were covered in presentations and panel discussions included respirology, neurology, nephrology, haematology, and cardiology.
“We were very pleased to note this year’s excellent attendance and response from the medical community,” said Judy Lee, MD, chief medical officer of Corniche Hospital.
“This annual symposium is a valuable forum in which experts have an opportunity to exchange and impart vital information about the care for pregnant women with medical disorders.”
The annual conference is an important part of Corniche’s commitment to promoting high-quality continuing medical education to health care providers in the region. The hospital regularly invites international experts to lecture in obstetrics, gynaecology and neonatology, and hosts educational sessions to provide up-to date information to clinicians.
'Our on-going continuing education program, combined with the multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach of consultants from Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) and Corniche Hospital, has dramatically improved patient care and the outcome of pregnancies,” said Jo Hubbard, education manager at Corniche Hospital.
“It has also enabled the sharing of knowledge and current evidenced-based practice between health care providers in the UAE.”
