Westmead International Update on Advances in Perinatal Care
The annual Westmead International Update was held on 26-28 June
2014 at the Loewenthal Auditorium, Westmead Hospital. This year's
program focused on advances in perinatal care, and an additional
day was dedicated to a lactoferrin workshop.
Internationally recognised leaders in perinatal
care presenting, including Professor Rebecca Reynolds
(Edinburgh) and Professor Mary Fewtrell (London).
This event was suitable for students, clinicians, scientists,
parents and members of the community with an interest in perinatal
care. The program addressed many advances in perinatal care
including: preterm respiratory care and resuscitation; Barker's
hypothesis and nutrition; public vs private hospital maternity
care; anaemia in pregnancy; potential roles of lactoferrin in
improving fetal growth and healthy preterm survival; and the
benefits of building closer partnerships with parents.
