Motherisk News: Motherisk Update 2010

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

SickKids Hospital - Hollywood Theatre, 555 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario

Things you must know if you treat pregnant and breastfeeding women

Join us on May 19th 2010 as Motherisk celebrates 25 years of counseling and groundbreaking research!

Since 1985, Motherisk has counseled over a half-million women, their families and physicians. Canada's expert on the safety of medications, infections, chemicals, and everyday exposures during pregnancy and lactation, Motherisk has become one of the biggest and most accomplished teratogen research, counseling and training programs in the world.

The Motherisk Update 2010 will share the latest, evidence-based information on a broad range of topics in maternal-fetal health, and teratogen information and counseling. Delegates can expect to take away new knowledge that will help them provide the best care to their pregnant and breastfeeding patients.

Accreditation

This program meets the accreditation criteria of The College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been accredited for up to 6.5 Mainpro-M1 credits.

This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, approved by the University of Toronto (6.5 credits).

This year's learning objectives:

  • identify important milestones of human teratogenicity and determinants of risk-benefit assessments;
  • define fetal risks of subclinical maternal hypothyroidism;
  • weigh the risks and benefits of managing depression in pregnancy;
  • take away clinical findings about H1N1 influenza and influenza vaccination during pregnancy;
  • list options for detecting drug and alcohol consumption, prenatally and perinatally;
  • recognize barriers to effective identification and intervention of addiction in pregnancy;
  • apply evidence-based principles in clinical setting to advise women who need to take medications while breastfeeding;
  • recognize the need for evidence for alternative methods in pregnancy, using reiki as an example;
  • weigh evidence for appropriate folic acid supplementation by women who are pregnant or planning pregnancy.
