Meeting the challenges of Mycoplasma genitalium: Advancements in detection and clinical understanding

From the 2021 World Microbe Forum, join leading medical professionals to discuss detection, prevalence, and treatment of the STI Mycoplasma genitalium (M. gen) from laboratory and clinical perspectives.

Triage and Management of Late Preterm Birth

Dr. Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman will cover the ongoing issues of preterm birth and
its effects on the late preterm infant. After declining for a decade, the U.S. preterm
birth rate has been rising for the last several years. Much of this increase is related
to late preterm births between 34 to 36 weeks of gestation. The ability to predict
preterm birth accurately remains elusive. Identification of women with preterm
labor symptoms which result in late preterm versus term delivery would be of
benefit to the patient, the health system and the unborn neonate. This program will enhance
attendees’ understanding of the importance of new research surrounding
late preterm birth and its effect on maternal health, obstetric and neonatal outcomes.

The Importance of Implementation Principles to Improve Obstetrics and Healthcare

Dr. Brian Iriye will highlight the need for the implementation of evidence-based solutions obtained from medical research. Over the years, systems have attempted to put various care bundles and other tools in place with mixed success in actually improving healthcare outcomes on a national scale. Implementation science takes evidence-based interventions and teaches us how to put that research to purposeful use in the real world. The principles of implementation science need to be embraced in obstetric practice. This program will help attendees understand the importance of this new and changing field to further improve maternal health and obstetric outcomes

Preterm Labor Management: What We Get Right, & Where We Go Wrong

Dr. Michael Ruma will cover the management of pregnant patients with symptoms of preterm labor. He will highlight the tools available and how physicians can effectively use them to assess a patient’s risk of delivering preterm.
