British Association of Perinatal Medicine 17 September 2007

Last week the British Association of Perinatal Medicine held their annual general meeting and conference on the Island. The meeting was held at the Villa Marina and delegates from all over the UK attended the two-day event.

Dr Prakash Thiagarajan, Neonatologist and one of the Island’s Consultant Paediatricians who attended the meeting from Noble’s Hospital said:

“We were extremely privileged to have the annual meeting held here on the Island this year. It is useful to be able to spend time with colleagues from throughout the UK, learning together and sharing experiences. Attending educational opportunities like this really help us to continue to improve the care we provide to babies and their families.”

This prestigious meeting heard a large number of high profile speakers talk about the latest developments and research outcome related to caring for newborn babies. His Excellency Lieutenant Governor, Sir Paul Haddacks KCB, also visited the meeting.

The British Association of Perinatal Medicine supports and advises healthcare staff including doctors, midwives and nurses who care for newborn babies and their families. The main aim of the organisation is to support all those involved in perinatal practice to improve the standards of care for babies throughout the British Isles.

The British Association of Perinatal Medicine also provides this guidance and support through education, facilitating clinical research, providing advice to governments on policy development relating to care of newborn babies and by fostering a collaborative working environment amongst those who work in the speciality.
