The Oxford Haematology in Obstetrics course is a 2-3 day interactive, enjoyable and informative programme providing up-to-date insights from experts in the field. The course is suitable for any health care professional interested in this field. Most commonly, attendees are consultants or registrars in obstetrics, haematology or obstetric anaesthesia, but senior nurses, midwives, scientists and pharmacists have also found it rewarding and we value multidisciplinary attendance.
