This seminar is designed for those wanting to build their clinical skills and knowledge in key areas of women’s and newborn’s pharmacy practice. This year’s seminar includes a major focus on endocrine disorders and infant nutrition, featuring presentations on the latest advancements in clinical management from leading clinicians and researchers. Day 1 focuses on women’s health and includes discussion on endometriosis, infertility, and polycystic ovarian syndrome, as well as thyroid disorders and diabetes in pregnancy. Day 2 focuses on newborn health and includes presentations on disorders of glycaemic control, neonatal endocrine disorders (e.g. thyroid, pituitary), infant nutrition, and medication administration challenges in newborns. The seminar also includes a generous amount of time for case-based discussion to facilitate clinical application, is ideally suited for those working within and outside the women’s and newborn’s health settings, and provides a unique opportunity for networking and idea sharing across practice settings.
