The courses utilize critical thinking concepts presented in a case study format that allow you to apply the knowledge you learn


The overarching objectives are to:

•Demonstrate effective management for pregnant or postpartum women who present with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. 
•Demonstrate effective management for women who have excessive bleeding after giving birth.
