Postpartum haemorrhage is accountable for a surprisingly large number of deaths still today. How many? Join Dr Julie Lee for this interprofessional perspective on PPH and what the future holds...

clinical skills need to be kept up-to-date as policy and procedures change continuously. what we are taught when we first graduate can differ greatly many years down the track. this course has given me more insite into PPH and how best to manage it.

This covered PPH in detail, with much of the information aimed at medical personal. Good to know what happens after the basics.
