Management of Neonatal Hypoglycaemia virtual presentation

20 Apr

Presentation overview: Low glucose levels in babies (neonatal hypoglycaemia) are common, and can cause brain injury, but the severity and duration of hypoglycaemia that causes injury is unknown.  Despite this, screening babies at risk and treating those with hypoglycaemia is generally recommended. We will review the pathophysiology of neonatal hypoglycaemia, and the evidence, or lack thereof, for best practice in diagnosis, prevention and treatment. 
Date: Tuesday 20 April 2021
Time: TBC
Cost: Free for members; $20 for non-members

"Possum Playgroup"

12 Apr

Presenter: Jill Martin, Newborn Family Support Team, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney.

A significant part of my role within that team is in supporting vulnerable families, particularly those with substance use in pregnancy. In 2016 we started the Possum Playgroup to address the loss to follow-up of a significant proportion of these families. It is a “one stop shop’ for families involved in the drugs in pregnancy program, that provides access to a wide range of services and supports on a small budget. The group has been suspended during COVID, but we are working on safe ways to re-open – hopefully soon.
