Management of the Labour Ward

Joint RCOG/BMFMS Event

4-7 June 2024

Online | Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3

In-person | Day 4 |  RCOG, London


This comprehensive course has been designed to increase your knowledge in the management of women with medical or obstetric complications as well as discussing the roles of neonatology, anaesthesia and analgesia on the labour ward.

The programme includes a rich blend of lectures, debates and peer discussion – invaluable for clinicians spending a significant amount of time on the labour ward, or with a major interest in risk management and clinical governance, audit and guidelines.  

To further your learning experience and unique to our course, there are two optional evening workshops covering detailed discussions on human rights and the women’s perspective of birth.

This course is recognised for, and covers, the theoretical component of the Advanced Labour Ward Practice and Labour Ward Lead Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs), which are undertaken as a ST6/7. The courses are valid for three years, and must be completed prior to completion of the practical component of the ATSMs. Those undertaking the Labour Ward Lead ATSM must also complete the Advanced Labour Ward Practice ATSM, and should therefore attend all four days.
