Current Perinatal Topics: Navigating the Evidence
About this event
The morning session will focus on all things clinical, including management of Category 2 tracings, oxygen use in labor, and labor management (assessment, oxytocin use, labor curves). Then in the afternoon session the focus will turn to the medico-legal arena, providing insights on common allegations, the role of documentation, and the importance of the deposition in defense of your practice. The day will close with a “Ask the Expert” forum, so bring your questions on clinical and legal issues!
