Fetal medicine course on placental disease: intrauterine growth restriction and preeclampsia update in clinical management

The correct use of Doppler in Fetal Medicine. Early and late-onset IUGR and preeclampsia. Systematic approach to clinical management based on evidence.
In spite of being among the most classical obstetrical complications, knowledge on PE and IUGR has been substantially renewed over recent years. Advances in management of these complications include prediction, integrating the notions of early and late onset disease, and counseling about long term impact in maternal and fetal health. Doppler fetal monitoring is still a mainstay in clinical management, but its correct use is still challenging for the average specialist.

The main goal of the course is to improve clinical competence, by ensuring the use of Doppler according to best practice and the application of systematic clinical protocols based on most recent evidence. All clinical lectures are based on real clinical cases, which are used to consolidate learning of the essential concepts. There is continuous electronic self-evaluation during the lectures. Given the important relationship with Doppler, one third of the course is dedicated to the basis and correct use of Doppler in fetal medicine, including a live demonstration session of all relevant vessels.
