Local obstetrics and gynaecology training: Supporting the women of Margaret River


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

18 October 2023

The Margaret River hosted an Obstetrics and Gynaecology Education and Training (OGET) workshop developed by RANZCOG at the region’s hospital on Thursday 28 September 2023.

There were 20 participants ranging from midwives, GP Obstetricians, general practitioners, emergency medicine doctors, registered nurses, Royal Flying Doctor service staff, and paramedics that attended the workshop which focussed on Placental Abruption. This can occur when the placenta partly or completely separates from the inner wall of the uterus before delivery. Left untreated, it endangers both the mother and the baby.

Dr Lauren Megaw, Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Bunbury hospital, leads the delivery of the OGET southwest WA hub, coordinated from Bunbury, and supporting the rural WA health services of Margaret River, Busselton, Manjimup, Collie and Bunbury. Speaking about the OGET program, Dr Megaw said: “The OGET session provides comprehensive multidisciplinary conversation to bring shared understanding. It highlights our challenges with transfer and brings out the many issues the sites face. This program will make a difference in the region and will open inter-disciplinary conversations.”
