MOET (Managing Medical and Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma) course, 9-11 May, Wellingon

The Managing Medical and Obstetric Emergencies and Trauma (MOET) Course is an advanced emergency management and resuscitation course devised by and for, anaesthetists and obstetricians, with help from Obstetric Physicians and ED Specialists. It is designed to improve knowledge, skills and confidence in dealing with serious and life-threatening medical, trauma and obstetric conditions in pregnancy.

This three-day course is mainly made up of scenario training and small group work. Prior to the course, candidates will be sent the course manual and will be required to do on-line learning, so that more of the course time can be spent in small group work and less in lectures. On the course, candidates will be given the latest Australian and New Zealand guidelines and information on many emergency topics e.g. acute asthma, DKA and C Spine imaging. A high instructor to candidate ratio ensures good support and learning. There is continuous assessment of progress during the course, which is comparable to the Early Management of Severe Trauma (EMST) course and the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) course. The course is $2600 for doctors and open to specialists and final year registrars in obstetrics, anaesthesia or emergency medicine. Senior midwives also attend.
