Designed for Nurses, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioners, Paramedics and Medical Officers, the Maternity Emergency Care course enables the remote health workforce to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to provide emergency care for expectant mothers and their babies in a remote or isolated setting.
The Maternity Emergency Care (MEC) course is designed to enable the health workforce to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to provide emergency care for pregnant, birthing and immediately postnatal women, and their babies.
CRANAplus encourages participants to apply the knowledge and skills learnt within the context of the policies of the employing health service and within each individual’s own scope of practice.
The MEC course will meet the learning needs of the remote and isolated health workforce (Nurses, non-practising midwives, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers/Practitioners, Paramedics and Medical Officers).
The CRANAplus Maternity Emergency Care course consists of the following components.
Family Violence and Perinatal Mental Health are also discussed.
Please refer to the Midwifery Upskilling course if you are a current midwife or GP Obstetrician.
If you have any queries about the course or its relevance to your practice, submit an enquiry here.
All participants attending a face-to-face workshop will be required to declare their COVID-19 vaccination status upon entry to the course venue.
Given the remote location of many of our courses, we are sometimes restricted to Vegetarian and Gluten Free dietary options. While we always supply fresh food and fruit, particular foods may not be easily accessed in remote areas. Should you have quite specific restrictions we encourage you to bring some basics and then pick and choose from the fresh food offered on the day. You should also inform us of any allergies you may have so we can advise the caterer and be aware of the situation. Please send any queries to the Course Coordinator, or submit an enquiry if you are yet to register.
