Active Management of Labour

Active Management of Labour for Senior Obstetricians have been organised at the hospital since 1975. In 1994 the format was changed to enable Midwives to participate in the course as well as Obstetricians from the same units. The new format has proved a great success.

In order to maintain the teaching and communication which has been a characteristic feature of these courses over the years, we are restricted to the first 16 applicants.

The courses are held in English. The programme is intense and consists of group seminars, discussion and regular labour ward rounds. The course fee is approximately €1500 and  includes hotel accommodation for 3 nights in central Dublin.

The Active Management of Labour course usually takes place in November each year and details will be posted here once they are confirmed.
