The Haematology in Obstetrics course aims to develop an understanding of the physiology and pathology of obstetric haematology conditions and provide practical guidance for disease prevention and management. The course is mostly aimed at consultants and trainees in both haematology and obstetrics, but previous years have also received good feedback from anaesthetists, pharmacists, scientists and specialist nurses/midwives. The course takes place in St Edmund Hall, Oxford's oldest college - dating back to the 12th century.

Topics covered include:

  • Placental development and physiological changes to the blood
  • Anaemia in pregnancy
  • Thrombocytopenia in pregnancy
