[audio http://traffic.libsyn.com/bitsandbumps/RCOG2015.mp3 ]

We’re back on the podcasting bandwagon, and this episode Penny is joined by self-proclaimed twit and legendary Aussie GP obstetrician, Ewen McPhee (@Fly_texan), to discuss what they learned at the recent RCOG World Congress.

We cover a range of topical issues including:

  • An update of GDM diagnosis and management
  • NIPT for aneuploidy screening
  • The use of progesterone for threatened miscarriage
  • Pre-term labour – screening and treatment
  • Menopausal hormone therapy
  • Fertility, the place of AMH and the legal and ethical dilemmas of fertility preservation
  • Future therapies for pre-eclampsia

If this has whet your appetite, why not come along to RCOG World Congress 2016 in Birmingham, or RANZCOG 2016 Annual Scientific Meeting in Perth.
