Conferences Placenta Accreta Spectrum Workshop

Save the date: May 31 and June 1 2024

About the Workshop

This 2-Day course is designed to provide interactive in-depth skills and knowledge about Placenta Accreta Spectrum (PAS) to healthcare teams: sonographers, nurses, and physicians who care for pregnant patients and may encounter PAS. 

At the end of this course, participants should be able to: 

  1. Screen patients for risk factors for PAS
  2. Improve antenatal screening for and recognition of PAS
  3. Counsel patients and families about PAS 
  4. Develop and refine referral processes for antenatally detected or suspected PAS
  5. Utilize simulation tools and scenarios to prepare your units for PAS
  6. Practice what to do if and prepare for when PAS is first recognized at delivery, or for the unexpected 'drop in' patient

The first day will be dedicated to interactive didactic sessions about what's new in PAS care, the patient perspective, and multidisciplinary expert panel discussions.

On day two, we will provide 3 interactive simulation scenarios designed to work on ultrasound skills, surgical skills, and team-based management and emergency response skills.   

We invite teams to bring and share simulation scenarios with one another!

This conference is sponsored by a generous donation from the Dale Brown Endowed Fund.
