Over a delicious dinner on Thurdays we will digest super important landmark papers, fresh findings that will change clinical practice. For some of the dinners we will be inviting eminent international or national researchers to give their expert input.
Next year there will be two Journal Clubs being run at Fenix Events in Richmond on 2 April and the 13 August. Fenix is a lovely venue that is just a short tram-mable/uber-rable/taxi-able distance from the CBD.
Mercy Perinatal Journal Club will be led by Dr Anthea Lindquist (academic obstetrician) Dr Roxanne Hastie (perinatal epidemiologist) and Dr Fiona Brownfoot (academic obstetrician). Also forming part of the support team will be the co-directors of Mercy Perinatal, Sue (Walker) and Stephen (Tong).
And to kick off the first meeting we are super excited to announce Professor Marian Knight (from Oxford University) will present her own landmark trial, the ANODE Trial. It found everyone having an instrumental birth should have an IV shot of augmentin + clavulanic acid (Knight et al, Lancet 2019:393,2395-2403) as it reduces the risk of getting an infection. By a lot.
If you missed Marian’s memo and other new practice changing pointers, just sign up and catch up. A delectable way to keep up to date with the latest, ground-breaking research to update your practice and improve patient care.
If you are one of our interstate friends, we still want you to pop down for the Thursday, stay for the weekend in Melbourne and tax deduct the flight! Fly down (or up). Have fun. Eat well. Get educated. And by the time you have digested the scrumptious meal at the Fenix and flown home you will be a better clinician by the following Monday…
(Just in case you were wondering, Journal Club will be CPD accredited with RANZCOG).Register
