IFPA Conference Updates
The decision was made to further postpone the IFPA conference schedule due to Covid continuing to affect international travel. This means the ANZPRA-hosted IFPA meeting to be held in Rotorua, NZ, will now be held from the 5-8th September 2023. We are sure this will be worth the wait, and look forward to (finally) welcoming the wider IFPA family to NZ in 2023.
In lieu of an IFPA meeting in 2022, the regional societies are working to hold independent meetings, with a particular focus on helping our ECRs, for whom limited in-person conferences have had a great impact over the past 2 years. Whilst ANZPRA regularly holds a satellite meeting, look out for something just a little more special in November 2022 to hopefully celebrate our ability to meet together in person once again...
Centre of Research Excellence in Stilbirth
The Stillbirth CRE is a national collaboration addressing the neglected tragedy of stillbirth. Through a priority driven program, the Stillbirth CRE aims to reduce the rate of stillbirth and improve care for parents and families whose baby is stillborn. It brings together parents, parent advocates, health care professionals, researchers, professional colleges, and policy makers, to reduce stillbirths and improve the quality care for women and families after stillbirth. The Stillbirth CRE work program focuses on research that translates into improved maternity care and better health outcomes for women and their babies. For full details, including information on their mission to develop an Australasian database of placental samples to promote and facilitate collaborative placental research, please visit our dedicated resources page, or the Stillbirth CRE website.
