GOLD Conferences International is excited to announce that the 2nd annual GOLD Perinatal Online Conference will be held from October 14 to December 1, 2014. GOLD Perinatal provides a unique continuing education opportunity that allows healthcare professionals to engage with numerous experts in the field of maternal-child health, without travelling.
Focusing on the 3rd trimester of pregnancy through childbirth and into the neonatal period, GOLD Perinatal is appropriate for nurses, midwives, physicians, lactation consultants, doulas and other healthcare professionals providing care to women, infants and families.
With 7 years of experience in organizing online conferences, GOLD is considered an industry leader. GOLD offers an online conference format that is an affordable and convenient way for healthcare professionals to stay up-to-date with evidence-based research. Conference participants have the opportunity to interact with other delegates from around the world, ask the speakers questions during the live presentations and in forums, and gain 15+ hours of certified learning credits.
According to Program Chair Fleur Bickford, "GOLD online conferences overcome the barriers that often prevent attendance at in-person conferences, such as tight schedules, budget constraints, and travel limitations. It's exciting that technology allows us to bring the knowledge and experience of world class speakers and researchers into the homes and offices of people who might otherwise not have that opportunity.”
The conference will run over the course of 6 weeks. During that time, more than 15 live presentations from high-calibre experts in the field of perinatal care will be streamed online. Each session will also be recorded, allowing participants to view them at their convenience.
The 2014 GOLD Perinatal Conference kicks off on October 14, with a keynote presentation from Dr. Helen Ball. Dr. Ball is a professor of anthropology at Durham University, and an expert in the area of nighttime infant care. Dr. Ball will share research from the parent-infant sleep lab that she established, in her presentation titled: Sleep ecology and development in early infancy. It will stream live twice on October 14 at 16:00 and 23:00 UTC. In its commitment to share current knowledge in a highly accessible way for all healthcare practitioners, GOLD will stream Dr. Helen Ball’s keynote presentation at no cost. Register online for this perinatal continuing education opportunity and to learn more about the GOLD conference experience.
